You don’t want to miss Christopher Hitchens today. He connects the dots between the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo to Obama’s speech at Cairo and finds where Western assumptions are only helping the enemy: Yet if we think it probable or possible that a man would only mutate into such a monster after undergoing the […]

Christopher Hitchens applies the verbal steel ruler to the hand of waiters who pour into your glass a second helping of wine. The other night, I was having dinner with some friends in a fairly decent restaurant and was at the very peak of my form as a wit and raconteur. But just as, with […]

Christopher Hitchens and Andrew Sullivan appearing on Tim Russert’s program on MSNBC:As the transcript at Media Matters indicates, Hitchens told Sullivan (who is gay), “Don’t be such a lesbian. Get on with it.” Sullivan doesn’t exactly look put out by his friend’s comment, and later responds on his blog to the criticism of Hitchens, “Some […]

I promised at the beginning of the week a closer look at God and Man. As we move closer to Good Friday and Easter, the “heavier” part of the week, I thought today would be a good day to go right to the core of religion vs. atheism. The great part about this debate is […]

Sid Blumenthal was arrested for drunk driving.

The original bumper sticker:The Tom McMahon version:It’s not often I get asked by both sides of a controversy for comment. The Society of the Perpetually Aggrieved has weighed in and the indispensable Tom McMahon is guilty of… what? The Interfaith Conference firmly believes that comparing Jews to Nazis, and suggesting that true Islam promotes terrorism, […]

Christopher Hitchens demonstrates again in an obit piece on Norman Mailer why he’s always worth reading, Mailer also continually ran a great risk that very few are willing to run. I mean the danger of simply seeming ridiculous. He once nearly lost an eye in a bar fight, because he thought someone had implied that […]
