Requiescat In Pace, Alexander Cockburn
I’m thrilled that we got to read your obit of Hitchens but sadly disappointed that we would never get to read Hitchens’ obit of you.
If there’s a place where we can argue in the afterlife, I hope that you two are going at it even now.
We’ll be poorer for not having you be one of the few sane voices when everyone else was crazy (even if it came with the price of you being one of the few crazy voices when everyone else was more or less even-keeled).
Rest in peace.
