RIP Christopher Hitchens

Recommended Posts

Or this: http://www.nytimes.c...tml?ref=opinion

"He also professed to have no regrets for a lifetime of heavy smoking and drinking. 'Writing is what’s important to me, and anything that helps me do that — or enhances and prolongs and deepens and sometimes intensifies argument and conversation — is worth it to me,” he told Charlie Rose in a television interview in 2010, adding that it was “impossible for me to imagine having my life without going to those parties, without having those late nights, without that second bottle.'"

I could say the same for mania. The allure and seduction are great. It deepens and intensifies life beyond calculation. But the destruction gets worse and worse.

ETA: So I need/should not go there anymore. Wish Hitchens had spared himself.
