The Mighty Hitch has Passed

   Christopher Hitchens has died. More here. (via)

   Whatever disagreements one may have had with him on matters of philosophy, there was no one who was a stronger, more articulate advocate for the value of western civilization.

   He was a great mind and he passed far too early. He was only 62.

 UPDATE: Very thoughtful missives on his passing from CDR Salamander, R.S. McCain, Michelle Malkin, and The Anchoress.

2 Hitch not only had the courage of his convictions, he had the courage to examine his convictions when challenged.

A sharp mind and a rare eloquence.  He will be sorely missed.
