Just dropped in to say, the champion of New atheism movement is back.
Hitchens in Texas.

Thank science! He looks much better tha he did a couple of months ago. One of my biggest regrets is not meeting the man when I lived in the US. The one time I was booked to see him he cancelled because of health reasons. I am really happy that he's healthy enough to walk about and talk to people again.

@Ajita: You were actually going to MEET Hitchens?! How did you manage that awesome feat? You're so lucky, you know that? Sad

Anyway for the time being, do check out his latest collection of essays: Arguably.
I have a copy of it and I've already read the first essay about the Founding Fathers and their doubts about religion.

Glad that Hitchens is up and about- he is our most loved anti-theist Happydance
"It's alright, I rarely meet anyone who's able to read it properly. Although personally, I never thought that it to be an odd of a name. Once I give people the pronunciation, they tend to remember my name by easily associating me with it. A unique face, a unique moniker."

I'm waiting for the video of his acceptance speech to show up.

He gave a 15 minute answer to a 8 year old girl's question on what books she should read. He included Dawkins' Magic of Reality, A Tale of two Cities and more.
Wanna see!!
