Writer Christopher Hitchens Dies

RIP you fought the good fight.

I have decided to take whatever my disease can throw at me, and to stay combative even while taking the measure of my inevitable decline. I repeat, this is no more than what a healthy person has to do in slower motion. It is our common fate.

Click on the title for a link to one of Christopher Hitchens writings on a young U.S. Army officer who died in Iraq. The officer never met Hitchens but was influenced by his writings. If you read anything about Hitchens read this article.
