This is a sad day indeed. Being prepared for it doesn't reduce the ache and sense of loss for a remarkable polemicist, essayist and avowed atheist.

His voice is silenced but he was a prolific writer and his final collection of essays Arguably will be a solace to those of us who revered his writings if not his politics:-)

His final book, Arguably, will grace many a bed side table for years to come. It is already on mine. Plus a drink.

RIP Hitch. You did not go gently into that goodnight. You did well.
