Hitchens today

Christopher Hitchens has an excellent article up today at Vanity Fair. It's about the experience of losing his voice. Read it. You'll be glad you did.

Thank you, Keith, I had read bits of Hitchens article but had not seen the whole thing.

Here is Leonard Cohen song he refers to: http://youtu.be/yaaUoyccLxs

Cohen as well had lost his voice and did not know if he would be able to perform again.

I guess to still have the option to write is not the end all for great sung/spoken talkers.

Nice words from Cohen. I have no clue what he means, or who "your" is in "your will" but it's still nice. Thanks.
