I like surprises

Note:  The following video is posted in the spirit of what Aristotle called the ability “to entertain a thought without accepting it.”  Kudos to Richard Hanna for the quotation from an old Greek guy who was even more opinionated than Christopher Hitchens. (A warning: some of Hitchens’ language is impolitely blunt.)

    Thanks for putting this on. I love Hitchens and happen to think his use of the English language is entirely appropriate. I agree with he and Harris and accept their conclusions without reservation. I have most of their publications.
