Christopher Hitchens Day

Event Description

Celebrating and remembering the life of Christopher Hitchens on the date of his birth, April 13th.  Let's lift a glass of Johnnie Walker Black, with a splash of Perrier, to the Bard of Atheism. If you smoke, a standard cigarette will do but a fine Cuban Cigar would be a tribute.

Holy crap, Reg, that video makes me think I need to run to the pharmacy for the morning after pill!

The Journey not the destination......

Same day as Thomas Jefferson, too, and that will be true forever, not just this year.  (Hey maybe Easter will actually fall ON Hitch day some year soon.  Or better yet, Good Friday.)

Well we have Lincoln/Darwin or Darwin/Lincoln day, now we can have Jefferson/Hitchens or Hitchens/Jefferson day.

(Please let's not have a bloodbath over which name comes first for either of the two days!)

(PS research shows the next April 13 Easter will be in 2031 followed by another in 2036.  April 15 easters, implying April 13 Good Fridays, will next show up in 2063 and 2074--we missed one in 2001.  Mark your calendars.)

Buy a latte, or get a really rich chocolate shake - just raise a glass!

I don't drink alky, but I will find something bad for me to indulge in.

A friend was kind enough to bring me back an authentic Cuban Cohiba Esplendido to smoke while sipping Johnnie Walker Black for the big day.  Check out this cigar!
