Christopher Hitchens 1949-2011

I will miss this man's staggering intellect, wit and bravado-laced with erudition. Through his lectures and writing, I learned what it meant to think for myself and strive for the full measure of my mind's capability. The world has lost a great treasure. I will carry a measure of sadness that manifests every time I reflect on his absence and the light he brought to my life.

Do yourself a favor; read his words, listen to his oratorical style and glean what you can from his example. We were lucky to have him for as many years as we did; still, I wish we'd had a few more.
