It been 4 years since The Great Hitch smoked his last cigar and quaffed his last scotch.
He was the first person who wrote that Mother Teresa was evil, a conclusion that I had reached in the 1980s in my teens – when she and Billy Graham were whistle stop tour stumping in Canada to protest against our new Health Canada administrative matter of medical procedure – abortion – having been removed from the Criminal Code of Canada.
He was brilliant and droll and gladly took on all Professional Godbots and decimated them. Brainbot Pride, eh. Hitchens spoke like a Brit but behaved like an American, because of the effort required to be understood by the opponents, so much goes over their heads when they speak mostly from their glands.
I used to really enjoy his Slate column and assert he was utterly speaking out his arse when he said women aren’t funny. Women have to put up with men, eh.
Anyway, here’s a collection of my Hitchens musings:
