I’ve just reviewed Christopher Hitchens’s memoir for 3:AM. It’s the paperback edition released in April, with a new foreword to accommodate his terminal cancer. It’s a real blow that this man is not going to be around for much longer.
US Christian demagogue Jerry Falwell is mentioned in the review, for his nasty and treasonous statements to the effect that America deserved 9/11 because it supported gay rights. Which gives me a reason to post Hitchens’s TV interview on Falwell’s death – surely the best adversial obituary since Hunter S Thompson on Richard Nixon.
Killer line: ‘People like that should be out in the street, shouting and hollering with a cardboard sign, and selling pencils from a cup.’
