    Any bets on a "deathbed confession?" (Despite the fact he clearly wrote that this was not the case)

    Re: Writer Christopher Hitchens Dies

    Is it weird that I thought he was going to die today? When I saw the thread title, I was a bit taken aback. Oh well.

    In any case, I'm sorry for his wife and children, especially his children, but he's of no particularly significance to me.

    Entertained, educated, irritated and disappointed people of most political persuasions at some point in his life. Social discourse is less without him, since he would challenge at least one of your dearly held views and do so well.

    Christopher Hitchens Dies dec 15 at age 62

    Christopher Hitchens dies from cancer at age 62.

    Christopher was one of the bravest and most original voices in the media today. I didn't agree with everything he said, but I respected him for his obvious intelligence, fearlessness in his beliefs and his love of humanity and debate. RIP, Hitch, we miss you.

    Bleh. I didn't like the man very much, disagreed too much with him, but as with most deaths, his death is regretable

    I can't help but think that as an athiest, the moments close to death are lonely and scary. He knows now whether he was right or wrong... I just hope that he's a peace.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
