Hey. At least this guy is consistent to the end. If the mans last wishes are no prayers, I see no reason why I would disregard them. I always thought him a thoughtful man, even if I disagreed on points. I hope him all the best.
He’s been consistent, belligerently so, for his entire career. That consistency has made him many enemies on his side of the aisle. And it’s why so many of us have so much respect for him. I never had a favorite Trotskyite until I started reading Chris Hitchens.
