Nice post Ligeia.
I wonder what an obit written by Hitchens himself would look like, considering how he did not insist on being gracious to the newly dead. He said Falwell, had they given him an enema, would have been able to be buried in a matchbox.
I look at two of maybe the biggest figures that shaped my life as a young adult - Joe Strummer and Christopher Hitchens, and both died too soon, for my liking. And not being young myself the fleeting nature of life really sinks in. And that does push me a little more to play a little harder.
