I can never read enough about Chris Hitchens
The better bit that I found and had to reread was this:
Hitchens once wrote a line that has almost gained the status of philosophical epigram or even scientific dictum: “What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.” Although it echoes Wittgenstein‘s famous injunction regarding the ineffable – “Whereof we cannot speak, therefore we must be silent” – Hitchens’s version is less a “no entry” sign than a civic reminder to place rubbish in the bin.
Hitch sure sounds OK in the interview, but who knows in that terribly risky journey through an oesophagul cancer cure!
