RIP Christopher Hitchens
Looks like we're now less one amazing thinker and writer with the loss of Christopher Hitchens. His ability to rile the masses on one topic or another (but especially religion) was nothing short of genius. Where others feared to tread, Hitchens dove right in and caused people to talk and think about ideas that were both uncomfortable and important at the same time. Atheists everywhere are sighing over the loss and over the fact that Richard Dawkins is their only well-known spokesperson left.
