I am new to AW. Joined a week or so ago and just got my 50 posts so, to celebrate, I edited my profile, added a personal avatar, and added a signature. Given the news yesterday I decided to use a quote from Christopher Hitchens, which you can see below.

I'm wondering what the various writers here at AW think of Christopher Hitchens, given his death.

Any thoughts? Anyone?

And if not Hitchens, what about champagne or lobsters?

Hi EddyJ! Welcome and congrats on reaching 50 posts.

As for Mr. Hitchens, we already have a thread for him in the Politics and Current Events section -- http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=232350

And as for lobster and champagne? Yes, please. :D

I heartily recommend the "New Posts" link at the top of the forum for seeing what all is happening on AW. I've found a lot of interesting threads and forums this way.

(And it took me a shamefully long time to notice that link!)

Ha! I've been a member since 2008, and I never noticed that link (new posts). That's how big this site is, or how unobservant I am. :tongue

There is an excellent thread in the Politics & Current Events forum here about Hitchens and his passing, lots of good comments. I recommend looking at it.
