Brooke Gladstone Remembers Hitch

Brief, but very good. From the post:

He offered a blueprint (beyond our ability to follow) of how to live fully, playfully, indulgently, fearlessly, as if death were always around the corner. Crushing Bill Clinton, pulverizing Mother Theresa, celebrating war, shredding religion, even when he was inconsistent, illogical or mendacious, his audacity was awe-inspiring.

Damn, Hitchens was fun.
