Hitch number 8

Hitch Number 8

Christopher Hitchens is currently listed as Time Magazine  eighth most influential person in 2011 as voted by you. (I'm not sure if this is the final list or if it is still open for voting.)

I must confess to being a little disappointed.

Even though these things are arguably superficial (just look at the top seven!), I would still have loved him to receive the validation of being voted the most influential, especially as this might well be his last hazar. (We can still hope he makes a complete recovery, though no nonsensical "praying for a miracle" of course ...)

Anyway he beat the execrable Glen Beck and that must be a source of satisfaction.
