Hitch Reports From Afterlife: Nothing To See Here, Folks!

When Christopher Hitchens died, I felt a little left out (not to mention decidedly D-list!) for having no stories of exchanging insults or sharing a drink with the renowned curmudgeon. But it is obvious he’s missed by a lot of people, even those who intensely disliked him for one reason or another.

Thanks to the services of certified medium Art Levine, however, the Washington Monthly is proud to reveal Hitch’s first communications from beyond the grave. He is characteristically chatty, and particularly wants you to know that the afterlife has not changed his firm views on the afterlife.
