    I regret that I have not paid more attention to CH in the past
    mostly due to my own prejudice. However it has been a refreshing experience to try and catch up with his work.This post is a great example of his insights and assertive presentation.
    Happy birthday Mr Hitchens,
    Thanks for the post.
