Christopher Hitchens has announced that he has esophageal cancer, a particularly difficult form of cancer. His prognosis is not known, but it is usually not good for this disease.
In spite of his several outrages, I have long respected the man for actually thinking, unlike many of the Left. Predictable and knee-jerk he is not. But regardless of what you may think of him, please join me in praying for him.
I trust that would not annoy Mr. Hitchens too much.
