Rest in peace Christopher Hitchens

Obits: Vanity Fair, NPR, NY Times, Christianity Today.

Hitchens last work before he died: "So far, I have decided to take whatever my disease can throw at me, and to stay combative even while taking the measure of my inevitable decline. I repeat, this is no more than what a healthy person has to do in slower motion. It is our common fate. In either case, though, one can dispense with facile maxims that don’t live up to their apparent billing."
