Obviously, I hope he’s okay and it certainly sounds like he is. In any case, no one could have predicted that Chris Hitchens would get drunk and deface a political poster:
I don’t know if you find this as news worthy or not, but Christopher Hitchens is currently in Beirut sponsored by the same group that owns that crap NOW Lebanon. He got in a few nights ago and surprisingly went out drinking. On his way out of the bar he saw an SSNP poster and wrote on it “Fuck the SSNP”. There just happened to be some SSNP thugs near by–most likely asking people for their ID, and most likely to no avail–and saw him write on the poster and kicked his ass. He is still walking with a limp.
You have to admire the guy’s pluck, no?
