The Millions: Defiance Until Death
The Millions has a post on Christopher Hitchens's posthumous Mortality.
The post includes this quote from Hitchens's friend Christopher Buckley which made me laugh in a manner unbecoming to being IN a library.
One of our lunches, at Café Milano, the Rick’s Café of Washington, began at 1 P.M., and ended at 11:30 P.M. At about nine o’clock (though my memory is somewhat hazy), he said, “Should we order more food?” I somehow crawled home, where I remained under medical supervision for several weeks, packed in ice with a morphine drip. Christopher probably went home that night and wrote a biography of Orwell. His stamina was as epic as his erudition and wit.
No, not a good role model for me currently but still a laugh-out-loud good read.
