Wasn't expecting this. Really sad. I didn't agree with a lot that Hitchens had to say, but he was completely honest in his assessments of many topics which made him refreshing in the world of opinion.
UPDATE: Hitchen's memorialized at Hot Air.
Hitchens being Hitchens, I wonder which he anticipated more eagerly — the end of the pain or finally knowing if he was right about you know what. I suspect he was right. I hope we’re both wrong.
