Good Night Sweet Hitch

With all the craziness of the free-agent market, the Ryan Braun saga and Tim Tebow’s impossible ascendancy over the past few weeks, it was easy to lose track of the other big stories. Not at RSBS, though.  Especially not when one of those stories was the untimely death of the hard-living, hard-charging and hard-nosed Christopher Hitchens.

He may not have always been likable but you always had to admit that he had a point.  I particularly enjoyed his takedown of the not-so-saintly and surprisingly sanctimonious Mother Theresa.  It’s even better when you hear him say it because that dry, British delivery gives it the little extra zip that really drives the point home:

Goodbye Christopher.  And since you knew as well as I that there’s no after-life, I’ll just say thank you.
