Did I mention...

...when I was doubled up in misery on Monday, taking those pictures on M Street, a very ruddy-faced and cranky looking Christopher Hitchens walked past me, staring all the time?

I asked the Sasquatch if having Hitchens walk past you, scowling, is like walking under a ladder or passing a black cat. "No," the Squatch replied, "I think it means you're going to get drunk. Or waterboarded."

Yes, I'm posting at 5:50 in the morning. I'm supposed to be at physical therapy in 10 minutes, but I've been sick on and off all night, and I'm too wobbly to drive anywhere right now. The irony - the back and shoulder and all the stress creates a need for therapy, but the back and shoulder and all the stress has made me too sick to drive safely.

Queue Alanis Morrisette.

I saw his waterboarding piece a few weeks ago. It made me physically ill. Hitchens himself, though, bleh.

Sorry you're sick. :-(

I hope you made it there. Can't imagine Hitchens making you feel any BETTER.

Are there two Christopher Hitchens - the man who wrote "Orwell's victory" and "God is not great" and, well, the other one ?!
