    R.I.P Christopher Hitchens...

    He lived large and was one of the most well spoken articulate thinkers and writers of our time.

    And he managed to offend nearly everyone (because he was usually always right) - my kind of guy.

    Although I didn't always argree with what Hitchens said or the way he said it, I do feel he was a greater challenger of conventional wisdom, contrarian, and iconoclast.

    On the subject of organized religions he was pretty much bang-on -- basically they're all bad.

    He was one of a kind...

    He was one of a kind. He walked it like he talked it. He was fearless and brazen but NOT cruel in a personal sense. He didn't suffer fools lightly and neither do I.
