Christopher Hitchens has many faults, but sentimentality and self-pity are not among them. He's writing about his recently-diagnosed esophageal cancer now, interestingly confessing that he'd been deathly ill the morning of his appearance on The Daily Show earlier this summer when he so charmingly acknowledged-- while inwardly in denial about-- his mortality.

 To the dumb question “Why me?” the cosmos barely bothers to return the reply: Why not?
Right. The universe really could not care less.  

He says he'll have something to say about the "astonishing number of prayer groups" who've been trying to intercede on his behalf, if he is "spared." I do hope he is.
