Christopher Hitchens, 1949-201112-16-2011
It is with heavy hearts that we learned of the passing of Christopher Hitchens.
Hitchens, 62, had been battling esophageal cancer for the past year and a half.
The opinionated, iconoclastic, masterful writer continued working until the end, penning
poignant and candid essays chronicling his illness.
We raise our glass to you, Christopher. You will be missed.
