“To remember friendship is to recall those conversations that it seemed a sin to break off,” wrote the late Christopher Hitchens in his June 2011 column, “Unspoken Truths,” for Vanity Fair. Today, at a memorial service in the Great Hall of Cooper Union, in New York, many of Hitchens’s friends and admirers did just that.

It's April 13th. Some want to call it Christopher Hitchens Day. I agree with Staks Rosch: "While some atheists will be raising a glass of Johnny Walk Black in his honor, I think the time for that solute is over. Now is the time to share his wit and wisdom with others in celebration of his life. So pick up your copy of God Is Not Great or your Quotable Hitchens and share a quote or three on your social networks and with your friends and family on his birthday. Read more (examiner.com)
Then again, why not do both?
