What a wonderful man
There are not many people like Hitchens, i'm a huge fan and i really hope he manages to pull through.
Hitch you legend.
all men should strive to be more like amis and the hitch
*hoards sharpen their tongues*
an unpopular view maybe, but i'm completely captivated by them both.
p.s. that interviewer...what a fucking dick.
A public intellectual of his stature in this day and age is all the more impressive.
Seeing him losing his hair. What an utterly wonderful man he is. Irreplaceable.
Genuinely irreplaceable: I just can't think of anyone as compelling, erudite and entertaining to watch as him.

was on question time with his brother. Peter put across a point of view that Christopher clearly disagreed with prompting him to say something along the lines of 'I'm horrified to hear a member of my family have that point of view' etc.
A fine man and I really hope he can somehow overcome this.
that video is pretty heartbreaking. Physically, a shadow of his former self.
