After reading every Slate remembrance, Vanity Fair obituary, and news flash about his death, I was glad to be able to share my own tidbit of tribute to a man we will never see another like. It was written with the help of Andrew Widener, which couldn’t have been more appropriate. I think he and I knew we would become friends when we discovered that the other was a fan. No one raged harder against the dying of the light. Adieu, Hitch.
