Christopher Hitchens, RIP

I still remember seeing him for the first time in 1998 on Hardball with Chris Matthews. It was a pivotal moment, as I found someone that spoke to me in a way very few people ever have. He had plenty of faults and bad arguments, but we're all better off for being able to listen to his arguments.

On religion.

Best of everything else.

Did CH have any thoughts on the "Preservation of the Jews"? Videos?

I was also introduced to him on Chris Matthews as he railed against the Clintons. As often was the case, he was the only one that made sense to me. I (obviously) disagreed with him on religion, but I usually agreed with whatever aspect of religion he was raging at.
