"Perhaps the secret of Hitchens' fame..."

was that he was at least satisfactory in both his roles as a journalist for hire and as a heavy-drinking celebrity.
His many, many articles were, typically, more or less worth reading, even if I can't remember at the moment much of anything he's written. What is exceptional about Hitchens is that he managed to churn them out at great pace and with a level of quality okay for the Internet age while also going to endless parties, lunches, dinners, debates, symposiums, and television appearances. In other words, Hitchens was good enough at the conflicting duties he undertook. -- Steve Sailer's iSteve Blog: Christopher Hitchens, RIP
