And A Bit of Hitchens Watching

I think Lance Mannion is a superb blogger - and he's got an interesting post on Christopher Hitchens.

It's another example of what’s become Hitchens' defining trope. He sets up impossibly high, and phony, standards of morality, intelligence, insight, or whatever, that only Christopher Hitchens is stern enough, disciplined enough, intelligent enough to meet (and which he only has to meet inside his own head) and uses them to show how stern, disciplined, intelligent, or whatever he is and how everybody else comes up short.

For some reason, this seems like a good time to recommend Matthew Turner's Oliver Kamm sweepstake.
