Christmas’ Featured Organism: Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)



I was going to feature the Norway Spruce (Picea abies) or some other Christmas-y plant this friday, and then I go read a SMBC cartoon and, moving the cursor on the lower-left red dot usually containing additional jokes, I discover that Christopher Hitchens is dead. Not very surprising given the terrible illness he had to fight with in the past year or so, but still quite shocking somehow. Bye, Hitch. Thank you for your inestimable contribution to freethinking.
