hitch is just great, I know, insightful review
being a christian who is passing , "through the dark night - alright - of the soul", as he hilariously concedes to the young contrarian. i totally see his side of the whole god issue. this missing element here is faith, which the bible states is a gift of god,
his position is honest, and respectful. and damn good advice.
to not just go along, with anything, to have your own mind, and to "question the obvious".

this is a quick, enjoyable, and eloquent read.
he has gone on, but thankfully we have his writings and appearances to enjoy.

Gary a brief, touching clip of hitch talking to a young free thinker, is on you tube.

it's good to be a free thinker, but he tells the precocious young lady, "remember, don't forget the love bit".
