Austin, Texas... Politex's
Followed a BushWatch link today to an article in "The Nation" by
Christopher Hitchens titled "Images in a Rearview Mirror". I've been a fan
of Hitchens for some time now, I quite enjoyed his book about Mother Teresa
-- "The Missionary Position" -- and his recent Harper's 2-part piece on
that vermin Henry Kissinger. Following the events of 9/11 I've been puzzled
by his petulant pissing match w/ Noam Chomsky but I was willing to extend
him the benefit of the doubt. With the publication of the subject piece,
however, it's plainly evident that, barring a successful attempt in his
adjusting his medication to the proper level, I am forced to throw his empty
carcass to the hogs. I uncharacteristically find myself envisioning a
scenario in which he cowers in a Red Cross warehouse in Kabul as he hears
the roar of black B-52's overhead.
Ah Chris, we hardly knew ye...
