Go to: In Memoriam: Christopher Hitchens, 1949–2011

Okay this is really pissing me off. When you google "Hitchens" in google news, this pops up:

"hateful in his behavior to women, pathological as a liar, and deeply suspect when it came to money in politics."

I don't know what's going on with the Google filters but that's not something that should appear as the headline for the death of Hitchens. It's fucking unbelievable...

A few hours ago I wept for a man I never met but who I considered a close friend, mentor, and hero. I never thought I could care so much for somebody who I've known only through writing and videos. Thanks to Hitch for this last poignant lesson.

Hear, hear!

Wish I were there to witness this tribute to Hitch in person. I hope a video shows up soon.

Comment 44 by Anatolweg :

The real tragedy is that he first lost his intelect and ethics and than his voice...The other way arround would have been far less sad...

But apparently it's neither anti-intellectual or unethical to take cowardly jabs at people you disagree with?

Go to: Sam Harris on the death of Osama bin Laden, and why it makes me uncomfortable

If it were up to me, I'd have given Bin Laden a completely televised memorial service and quote passages from the Quran that talk about jihad, martyrdom, death to infidels, and paradise for martyrs to show people that Islam really is in play here--that Bin Laden could be considered a Muslim hero if you take Islam a la carte.
