Christopher Hitchens, R.I.P.

Christopher Buckley:

Yes, everything he said was brilliant. It was a feast of reason and a flow of soul, and, if the author of “God Is Not Great” did not himself believe in the concept of soul, he sure had one, and it was a great soul.

Via Roger Ebert, this quote from Hitch: “Being a writer is what I am, rather than what I do.”
