Mary E. Williams, a writer with Salon magazine, had this to say about him: "He remains a big, fat jerk. And a goddamn genius."
This is the way that many view him and his writings. His Atheism, and most of the arguments for it, are wonderful. His NewCon-ism and political approaches to Iraq and many other issues are often ridiculous. But it's always worth reading him.
There is no 'prayer' one can offer for Christopher - although he does accept the ones that are offered for his cure as people show their wishes through them - but I do have a hope that he will be around for a long while, with much less painful manifestations of his Esophageal Cancer.
May he continue writing his articles (maybe, even a book) and keep us entertained for as long as he can through TV shows.
