Christopher Hitchens rode a bicycle

Skeptic Christopher Hitchens on a Dahon folding bike. He’s riding with his feet off of the pedals to protest New York’s Vehicle and Traffic Law §1232, which says “feet must be on pedals” when riding a bike.

I’d normally write “R.I.P.,” but that would be kind of against everything he believed in.

    Christopher Hitchens was a cheerleader for oil-war.  Christopher Hitchens has the blood of Iraqi children on him.  Hope cancer was painful and slow for him.

    Gladdened, but not surprised that Hitch rode a bike. Sorry to see him go, because we certainly need him. Sad that we who are alive now probably won’t see his like again.

    I agree that he was deluded on the war issue. Many people are similarly mistaken. That doesn’t mean we should wish such people a slow and agonizing death. I don’t believe for a minute that Christopher Hitchens cheered the slaughter of innocents. In the final analysis, I believe his views helped more people than were harmed by them.
