Hitchens has esophageal cancer

I was never a big Hitch fan, but this is very sad news, I cannot begin to tell you how horrible a way esophageal cancer is to go, my great grandfather died from it.  And I hate to sound so concrete on that, but esophageal cancer is one of those ones that is pretty much a death sentence. 

And yes, Allah's got that right, cigarettes and excess alcohol will absolutely do this to you, it was rare to see my great grandfather without a lit cigarette in his mouth until his health started going downhill.  Which is why you'll never, ever see me touch a cigarette (well, that and they smell wretched and cheap, yes it's partly tobacco snobbery, too), and only smoke a pipe or cigar on occasion.
