Those Zany Hitchens Brother...

Those Zany Hitchens Brothers, Pt. II: From Christopher's recent letter to Commentary magazine about a profile on him.

As for the preposterous, vulgar remark maliciously attributed to me by my younger brother, Peter, to the effect that I would not mind seeing the Red Army watering its horses in the Thames, I never made it. [...]

It is not my fault if my brother is a fanatic and a fool

Gee, I wonder if the brothers are friends (at least in any "non-zany" sense of the word)?

Peter Hitchens -- the first thing I've yet read of his -- wrote a very good, and perhaps the only really thoughtful essay I know of in opposition to the war.

I have a large family. I might have to pick that line up.

I'm forty-six years old, and the oldest in my family. To this day, my brothers tell me that Mom never liked me. We would fight at that point, but it's getting hard to move like we used to, so we usually just swear horrible oaths at each other over whiskey.

No big deal.

Supposed brothers are friends. They stick up for each other when their respective opponents attack them.

Christopher insists his parents love him the most.
