Hitchens Interview

I was clicking through links as you do, and saw an image of what I thought at first glance was Dr James White, but was in fact Christopher Hitchens!
He is currently being treated for cancer.
Anyway, if you click on his image you can watch a multi part interview concerning world issues and his opinions on such issues.
I like listening to him speak, bust most of all I pray that he may find mercy in these "his" last days.

You continue not to be aware of what quotation marks are used for in the English language. They are NOT used for emphasis. Use italics instead, you ignorant fool. - Henry

Thanks for the lesson Henry, but according to the atheist worldview, why even bother to be correct? In your world, one man's emphasis is another man's quotation.

Besides, how do you know I wasn't really quoting? Maybe I forgot the footnote!

I see you are not getting any more gracious as you get older.

Language is intersubjective. There are rules that are based on consensus. You can't just invent your own grammar. It makes you look like a semi-literate oaf.

Which is probably a good thing, given your obvious pretence to being a serious intellectual.

Thanks Henry, but I make no pretence of being an intellectual. High school education and no more.

Now, on a serious note. Are you not Irish?

I am Irish. What of it?

Well, you know what they say about the Irish, right?
