Man of His Words

The New York Times | Sunday Book Review

"Anyone who occasionally opens one of our more serious periodicals has learned that the byline of Christopher Hitchens is an opportunity to be delighted or maddened — possibly both — but in any case not to be missed. He is our intellectual omnivore, exhilarating and infuriating, if not in equal parts at least with equal wit."

Don't miss the Book Review Podcast (Bill Keller on the career of Christopher Hitchens).

Would it be ironic for Hitchens to be in an afterlife w/ no booze or books? I don't think so. That would be standard issue revenge. If God has a sense of irony, he'd say to Hitchens on arrival: "Nice try, old boy but you were wrong. Here I am. The bar's open and the library's all yours. Enjoy"

"...ontology of the Harry Potter books." What is that supposed to mean? When or where has Hitchens referred to anything like this? Shine a light any one?

The WOMD in Iraq were underneath the ground.
Isn't the language of civilization beautiful?

people are slaughtered wholesale in the name of Islam because of "cultural misunderstandings" or perhaps "greedy capitalist pigs". Isn't the language of anti-imperialist rhetoric beautiful? honeybee truckloads...of BULLSHIT!
