Chistopher Hitchens died yesterday at age 62.
 In this historic event, Stephen Fry and other friends of Christopher Hitchens came together to celebrate the life and work of this great writer, iconoclast and debater. Fry was joined on stage at the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall by Richard Dawkins and the two discussed Hitch's unflinching commitment to the truth. Hollywood actor Sean Penn was beamed in from LA by Google+ and, between cigarette puffs, read from Hitch's acclaimed work, The Trial of Henry Kissinger. Five friends of Hitch spoke via satellite in New York: satirist Christopher Buckley and editor Lewis Lapham mused on Hitch's prowess as a journalist. 'Like a pot of gold', said Lapham. Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie and James Fenton delighted the audience with stories of Hitchens as a young man. Rushdie drew roars of laughter when he recounted a word game invented by Amis and Hitchens where the word 'love' is replaced with 'hysterical sex'. Particular favourites included Hysterical Sex in the Time of Cholera and Hysterical Sex Is All You Need.

Watching the event with Hitch at his bedside in Texas, Hitch's wife Carol and novelist Ian McEwan provided an email commentary. 'His Rolls Royce mind is still purring beautifully', typed McEwan.

An update: only hours after his death, this pathetic religious paranoiac inflated gasbag bastard, who has the fucking nerve to claime that Hitchens was his "friend" tries to capitalize on his death and only furthers to prove the truth in the adage,"Religion is the final refuge of a scoundrel" Fuck you Bill Bennett....You moron fucking hypocrite! This is the same jerk who resigned in disgrace as Secretary of Education under Reagan because of gambing and alcoholism, this jackass is bragging about his drinking bouts with his buddy, Chris...while thumping his empty head with his un opened and obviously un read bible.....and even more ranting! Just about every media kkkristian blowhard weighed in with their pathetic paranoid last word of Hitchens death. Rick Warren, quite predictable who also referred to Hitchens as his "friend" sayting much the same as Bennet, but the bigges gaping anal orifice of the bunch, so far was Right Wingnut Kristo fascist, Bryan Fischer who said, "Hitchens is in hell now because god loves him"...bottom took a great man, a grand mind to garner so much comment from those who he intellectually bested while he was alive. Look, kkkristians die all the time, every day and really, I couldn't  give a fuck!
“Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way.”
Christopher Hitchens
