It’s hard sometimes to imagine that this man of great mind, wit and humor, who could be quite fierce in a debate, was once an innocent little child. These pictures are from a 2011 Daily Mail article written by Christopher’s brother, Peter. He is a journalist living in London and he generously made time to meet with when I was visiting last June.  I wrote about the experience in a posting, Meeting the Other Hitch.
