Clark Stooksbury provides an excerpt from a Jonathan Chait article on Christopher Hitchens.

My favorite quote about Mr. Hitchens would be from Alexander Cockburn of Counterpunch (although admittedly, it does not involve his politics and is a scurrilous ad hominem attack (so what? It's a great quote!)):

Here's what Hitchens wrote: "On the whole, observe the same rule about gin martinis--and all gin drinks--that you would in judging female breasts: one is far too few and three is one too many."

...As far as dry martinis go, there's been sound evidence in the past to take Hitchens as at least a six-breast guy, with the Artemis of Kybele as his beau ideal.

That is all.
