Oh Please

I get that some people really admired Christopher Hitchens.  To me, he was a war-mongering chicken-hawk and pretty obviously a raging misogynist.  Like many, he got rich as a professional Clinton-hater in the 90’s playing the role of “even the librul Mr. Hitchens” to a tee.

I do happen to think he was right about religion being an overly powerful mythology but hey, he didn’t invent atheism.

That said, has there ever been a middling writer to still be eulogized two years after his death?

It’s unseemly, to say the least.

    Imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth there will be over Dawkins.
