A friend of mine called him The attention whore, but I really enjoyed "The Trial of Henry Kissinger". Yeah, a powerful person on trial in USA!?

I was going to say, "God bless his soul" but I wouldn't want to insult his memory, so I'll just say nothing.

I didnt always agree with you. And there was times when your arguements raised my blood pressure. But you always spoke intelligently, passionately and with conviction. Your contributions to the human experience will be discussed for generations. You will be missed.
RIP Chirstopher Hitchens.
