As always, the lovely Christopher Hitchens

I've been reading a fair amount of atheist thinking from the last couple of centuries and it seems to me that Hitchens really has taken the mantle, sans the anti-semitism, of H.L. Mencken. He pulls no punches, insults equally in kind, asks for no quarter, and shreds his opponents for their wish-thinking and the pathetic frailty of their logic. Should you like to see one of his late book tour appearances for God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, give a watch.
