Christopher Hitchens has died at the age of 62 after suffering from cancer.
A great man – an incredible thinker of our times. Whilst you may not agree with every (or any) stance that he took, one had to admire the way he would argue his case against anyone.
I met him once – I mean that I met him to talk to – although the conversation was short and the situation quite strange. Later I saw him as the speaker at an event and enjoyed it very much. I am so grateful I was able to see him that time and wish I had had the chance to see him more.
I know he didn’t think much of religion (and, on that I can only agree with him) but, still, I say, Rest in Peace.by
