Remembering Our Friend Christopher Hitchens

Our friend Christopher Hitchens, ”...the incomparable critic, masterful rhetorician, fiery wit, and fearless bon vivant,” passed away last night at the age of 62.

Nicholas Jackson, writing in The Atlantic early this morning, reports he confirmed The New York Times halted the presses to make room for an announcement of his death. “That is,” wrote Jackson, “the most influential newspaper in the world has put its work and printing process on hold to make room on the front page for the obituary of a single man. If that isn’t a testament to his work, I don’t know what is.”
