Christopher Hitchens Gone But Ne'er Forgoten

I lion is lost to us in the passing of Christopher Hitchens yesterday from complications due to cancer.  As fearless physically as he was intellectually, Christopher Hitchens worked as a war correspondent and political commentator for decades, challenging every sacred cow of establishment sensibilities, while also becoming a successful and prolific author.  Most recently Hitchens has become known for the promotion of "new atheism" in works like _God is Not Great:  How Religion Poisons Everything_.  While Hitchens is gone his body of hundreds of articles, speeches, books, and interviews lives on.  His wit will be missed, but her certainly did not die in vain.
