Good Luck, Hitch!

Well, you may have heard the bad news by now…Christopher Hitchens, a writer of considerable courage and integrity, as well as rarely surpassed erudition and elegance, has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.  Hitchens is the sort of writer who has offended almost everyone at some point, but he has consistently, in his days of association with both the left and, if not the right, at least the pro-Iraq War faction of the right, stood up for the underdog in the face of oppression.  He has also compiled a long record of distinguished literary criticism, and has established himself as one of the few intellectuals of modern punditry.

Suffice to say, I am a huge fan, and have been for some time.  It is with considerable sadness that I ponder the implicatons of the prognosis, as just a little research quickly revealed appallingly low survival rates for this particular type of cancer.  The odds are stacked against him, and in an irony that will not escape him, thousands of people across the entire political spectrum are praying for this famously proud atheist  to be the rare exception to the rule. 

Regardless, he’s not dead yet, and while there is breath, there is hope, so let’s not make this a premature obituary.  I’m pulling for you, Hitch – I truly am.  Hang tight and fight with all of your considerable might…

It is that this is the first World Cup where you can honestly [...] Sunday Fun: Young and Hungry Edition In all the years of great musical performances on Saturday Night Live, I think my all-time favorite is the one below (couldn’t do YouTube, because YouTube keeps yanking it down).  This is DEFINITELY the most energetic performance I’ve ever seen on SNL, and I think you can chalk it up to a band that was [...] A New Trend Emerges Remember when the whole lefthand side of the blogosphere was all aflutter over a spot poll passed in the immediate wake of the passage of health care reform that showed that the public actually approved of the Democratic plan to bankrupt the nation – er, pass health care reform?  This despite months of polling showing [...]   [...]
