Christopher Hitchens has pneumonia.

Not good when you're already battling cancer. It might be that I'm a bit over-concerned because my mother died of pneumonia back in May, but I see pneumonia these days as a death sentence. Maybe with a comparatively young and healthy man like Hitchens it isn't invariably fatal, and I'm just going by what I saw in the nursing home my mother was in. In any event, my best wishes to Mr. Hitchens for a full and complete recovery.
