A Fitting, Respectful Tribute to the Departed Christopher Hitchens

In his December 17 eulogy in the pages of the New York Times, guest columnist and blogger Ross Douthat states:

Rest in peace, Mr. Hitchens. Intellectual discourse is now diminished in your absence. And I speak as a believer who sincerely misses all that you added to the discussion.
