The Sun Came Up Today

30Jun10

In other news, Christopher Hitchens has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Unfortunately, this had to happen at some point. Hitchens isn’t someone I often agree with, but he’s someone I love having around. Strangely, in the linked article, HuffPo suggests that he likely cause of the cancer was smoking. I’m sure it wasn’t helping, but from what I understand, alcohol more often causes esophageal cancer. I’ve rarely seen Hitch without a drink in his hand; this is not something I’d attack him on, but I think this says a lot about what we choose to find harmful. It’s easy to demonize smoking, but drinking still holds a more romantic allure. I’m not one to judge on either vice.
