One of the greatest orators, logicians, intellectuals, and truth of our time. Christopher Hitchens was a champion of truth for those of us who know that there is something inherently wrong with the arguments of theists yet haven't the depth of vocabulary needed to eviscerate their carefully sculpted fallacies.

Help get a statue of Christopher Hitchens erected in the UK by signing this e-petition. A hero to many people… a hero to reason, logic, literature, intellect, research, truth, and so much more. He should be remembered, and one day when the world becomes a better place people will look at that statue and know that he was at the forefront of the struggle to make it so, and that without him we would not have arrived there.
"The mark of an independent mind is not what it thinks, but how." Christopher Hitchens

Thom Yorke creates sweet treats for my ears
I once had coffee with Thom Yorke in Oxford in the late 90s. Radiohead had released "The Bends" and were well on the way to megastardom. He was going through the Sunday papers and saying how worried he was by the increasing number of CCTV cameras in Britain. I thought he was being paranoid, but 15 years later, it turns out he was being prescient. On reflection, it seems to me that artists like Yorke are the canaries in societies coal-mine, sensitive enough to detect the signals of change early.

Russian poet Mayakovsky
Vladimir Mayakovsky (July 19 1893 – April 14, 1930) was a Russian and Soviet poet and playwright. He is among the foremost representatives of early-20th century Russian Futurism.
Vladimir Mayakovsky was the son of a forestry officer. By the time of the 1905 revolution Mayakovsky was already working with the local Social Democrats, and when his family moved to Moscow a couple of years later he joined the Bolsheviks. He did propaganda work for the party until his arrest in 1908. Mayakovsky was one of the most visible members of the Russian artistic scene. The poems he wrote during this period, “ The Cloud in Trousers” and “I,” were among the most important of the time.
Mayakovsky, the famous Russian poet, he hated Stalin for being too bougeois. After his death even though Stalin hated him the Russian people demanded a statue of him at one of their main subway squares in the middle of the city. Stalin had to comply.
