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.

Here is a site with more info on his death:
Guardian: Hitchens Dead at 62
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
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.
I disagreed as much as I agreed with him or more...but I always respected the depth of his intelligence...RIP
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
The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that things are not mended again. - Alan Paton
Bach is the beginning and end of all music - Max Reger
It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
Don't really agree with much of what Hitchens ever said, but eh, we all die at some point....RIP.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

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.
