Controversial author and essayist Christopher Hitchens, 62, has finally lost his battle with cancer, which he documented with brio, as was his wont, writing: "I personally want to ‘do’ death in the active and not the passive, and to be there to look it in the eye and be doing something when it comes for me.”

As befits a well-known media pundit--who was always readable and challenging even when you didn't agree with him-- the eulogies and obits are flowing thick and fast.

Here's the NYT, Andrew SullivanThe Daily Beast. The Guardian and
a column from Newsweek and The Daily Beast.
