My favorite modern essayist has passed away.

Christopher Hitchens lost his battle with cancer this past Thursday while seeking care at a hospital in Texas. I am saddened by the news and look forward to his upcoming memoir which will be released in January. Hitchens was brilliant. He was the most archaic journalist of our time. Witty, facetious…..brave. There is no one quite like him. He will be deeply missed.
