Without a Hitch

As I’m sure you’re all aware by now, yesterday marked the loss of one of the world’s most notable and polemic non-believers and surveyors of the human condition.  Christopher Hitchens could be simultaneously vulgar in his eloquence, insulting in his insightfulness and was as incorrigible to his detractors as he was encouraging to those he supported.  Our thoughts are with those who were fortunate enough to have shared his too short a life with him and our glasses are raised in memory of the man who, as Kipling would have said, filled ‘the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run’.
