I'm sad to hear he will never again thrill with his insight and wit. The appropriately anticlimatic end of a life lived in constant embrace, brilliance, and for loving life lived in light of logic and learning. His clarity will continue to inspire.

Now it is up to us to make our mark for reason. His work will continue to move minds for millenia as long as we are strong enough to keep them from the pyres.

Gentle thoughts to his family, who must be forced to miss him personally.

Farewell Mr. Hitchens.
