Death of the Hitch

I’m not sure if there was a good reason for him being as famous as he was, but I do know that I’m neither happy nor sad that Christopher Hitchens is dead.

The thing about being dead is that you can’t say anything. People can say whatever they like about Christopher Hitchens now, and he can’t comment.

It would be frustrating to be dead, aware that you were dead, and aware of what was happening on earth. Every time your name came up for the rest of all time, it would effectively be people talking about you behind your back.
