RIP: Christopher Hitchens

Cancer is horrible.

He was 62. When I saw him a few years ago (the famous getting-into-shit-with-Syrian-Nazis-affair), he acted as if he was 25.

I guess I can mention this. I saw him last year at Union Station. His hair was thinning from cancer treatment.

He was outside, smoking. Puffing away.

Something about his defiant character in that, I guess. Or foolishness. Or both.
