Christopher Hitchens diagnosed with cancer

Christopher Hitchens — author of the book, ‘God Is Not Great,’ is being treated for cancer. The writer has cut short his latest book tour in order to undergo a course of chemotherapy on his esophagus.

Don’t pray for him, says one columnist on his Twitter stream. “Perhaps Hitch will read these tweets and think: how touching. Then again, perhaps not,” responds religion columnist Damian Thompson.
