Had an impromptu meeting of the Hitchens Fan Club with a fan from Berlin at Cafe Minerva in New York City. Yes, that is a bust of Hitchens along with “Arguably”. I insisted that each person with comments address the bust directly (OK, kidding, but it’s a fun thought).
From left to right are art dealer Sten Nordenhake from Berlin, Professor Sheldon Krimsky (who is a colleague of Hitchens friend Dan Dennett at Tufts) and Tom Casesa (your blog author).
Professor Krimsky, author of The GMO Deception, with Tom.
Playwright Carolyn Borris-Krimsky with Professor Krimsky, Sten with the Bust! and filmmaker Hector Carosso. Carosso’s recent film, Kayan Beauties, sheds light on the problem of human trafficking in Burma – well worth checking out.

True to the spirit of Hitch, debates were had on various subjects…
The only small fly in the ointment was the substitution of good red wine for Johnnie Walker Black. Somehow I don’t think CH would object.
Where did you ever find that bust?
Oct4stfrancis: Bust came from a guy up in Canada. Here’s his page. It says sold out, but I think he makes them to order.https://www.etsy.com/listing/192124020/christopher-hitchens-tribute-bust
