Half an hour with Hitchens

Jeremy Paxman’s half-hour interview with Christopher Hitchens really is quite the thing. On his cancer, his regrets, his continued atheism in the face of his own mortality – he’s just compelling. The guy’s fierce streak of decency (whether you agree with his conclusions or not, you can’t accuse him of not holding true to his people-must-not-suffer principles) is something to behold.
