People seem to get up early in Texas. 8.40 am?

Are they CST? That time difference will be even rougher here on the East Coast.

Well it's good news he is still making appointments.

Keep it up Mr Hitchens!

does anyone know if he'll stick around for an autograph signing and a possible mingling with fans?

He left quickly after the debate to catch a plane, so no mingling, unfortunately.

As pertaining to the Dembski - Hitchens debate, I appreciate Tom's link.

The closing prayer was offered to the Christian god ironically, "Father, we thank you for confusing us. . ."

It was apparent that Dembski had done his homework on Hitchens' typical arguments, and responses to such, but it was torture to listen to Dembski bring up Hitchens' arguments, as if to beat him to the punchline, only to take the beating with the weapons he placed in Hitchens' hand.

Dembski: "Hitchens likes to say this and that and blah blah blah."

Hitchens: "Ah, you've handed me the whip. How would you like the beating?"

It's good to see Hitchens in seemingly good spirits. I'm not sure if it's the illness, or if Hitchens was simply being kind because of the young indoctrinated audience to whom he was speaking, but he seemed less sharp and a bit less heavy with the club during the debate.
