I am greatly saddened by this news. As some others have said I woke up to it. The world has lost one of the great ones. I've watched countless videos of his debates and read God is Not Great. He was amazing.

I found this rather innocuous 'tribute' over at the telegraph.

American pastor Rick Warren, who delivered the invocation at President Barack Obama's inauguration, wrote: "My friend Christopher Hitchens has died. I loved & prayed for him constantly & grieve his loss. He knows the Truth now."

Some one should tell Rick that Hitch knew the 'Truth' way before the moment of his death and it's pricks like him who keep people from knowing it. How much of a 'friend' was Rick to Hitch I don't know but I find it his sentiments rather grating.

I hate xtian sympathies.

Hitch, RIP. You will be missed by many.
