“I burned the candle at both ends… and it gave a lovely light”
I recently had a chance to see Christopher Hitchens speak in NYC, but procrastinated, seeing that he would be back in the city by summer’s end. What a shit decision, eh?
But he’s not in the ground yet. I smell fresh earth in most of the comments posted around the interwebs, which makes me kind of sad. I mean, I know the numbers are not in his favor for esophageal cancer. Fuck – that inspired me to get an upper endoscopy for the brutal heartburn I’ve had for years. It’s serious shit.
But nonetheless – let’s not bury the man just yet. I just hope he survives the relentless boredom he’s been subjected to. Someone send that man an iPad.
