Aw, xmas before last, such an innocent time. I like that he's with Etta in the pic, and not mad at her. ;) She sat next to him on his last night, too.

I pointed out to one friend, today, that people like to point to Hitchens' lifestyle (ardent smoker/drinker) as causality for his disease. It's a risk factor, and all too convenient to point at his vices. Hitchens lived 18 months after diagnosis (Rich, 17 mos). They were both treated at MD Anderson. Rich quit smoking when he was in his early 40's, and barely drank.
