Death of Christopher Hitchens

A writer who sits alongside Orwell and Voltaire, of erudite wit; an awesome intellect with the power to change and galvanize minds with a phrase; a man of steadfast principle who would, with great heart, stand up for all that is good and honest and fair in the face of all mainstream opinion and danger; with a library of resources in his mind ready to take on, with vigour, even the most omniscient of tyrants and to point the finger at the most falsely regarded fraud. To read Hitchens is to read a literary leader, one who will so often be referred back to in my quotations; he has fallen at the only battle lost, the one which cruelly cut short his life.


  1. Happy and peaceful Christmas to you and your family, with so much friendship and joy Elettra

  2. Здравствуйте.
    В эти святые дни Рождества Христова, хочу поздравить вас с праздником. В этот день Христос пришел, чтобы спасти наш Мир от Тьмы.
    Желаю вам, чтобы светлый праздник вам подарил тепло, и уют в ваш дом, здоровья вам и вашим близким.
    С Рождеством Христовым и с Новым годом.
    Воеводин Дмитрий.
