    Hitch lived…that is all. Don’t dispair, don’t mourn. I suspect his attitude would have been against it. Remember him for what he stood for, and stand tall. All who question folly deserve that…

    Why should Hitch have tried to suppress mourning? It’s not as if he is in a better place. He is gone.
    But we can remember him, be glad he lived, and raise a glass in his honour.

    Thanks Greta!! As always, well said and eloquent and so on the mark. I didn’t always agree with him, he sometimes got it wrong (in my opinion), but he got it and said it. Two distinct voices moved me to declare myself an atheist, Christopher Hitchens and yours. He will be deeply missed. Tears here as well.

    Just read a syndicated column by Ross Douthat “Defender of Atheism,” predictably attempting to sidle up to the memory of Hitchens, state that religious people actually appreciated his “rebellious nature” (you all know where this is heading…) and ending with the obligatory mention of the hopelessness of atheism, but wait, that Hitchens secretly believed otherwise, and then… “My hope–for Hitchens, and for all of us, the living and the dead–is that now he finally knows why.”
    Unfortunately, there’s going to be a lot of that, before people finally settle on the fact that Hitchens just hated religion, period.
