One of my first posts on rationalbrain was a review of ‘God is Not Great’ by Christopher Hitchens.
His writing actually served to inspire me to start this blog, so it was sad to read yesterday that he has died, aged 62. Tobacco claims another scalp.
I was a late-comer to his work, but was immediately impressed by his clear, direct and often witty writing style.
I’m sure he’s in heaven at the keyboard of his word processor.
And I’m certain he would have hated anyone saying that, even as a joke.
