Personal Quote:

[on Christopher Hitchens] He courted the label 'contrarian,' but if the word is to have any muscle, it surely must imply the expression of dangerous opinions. Hitchens never wrote anything truly discommoding to respectable opinion and if he had he would never have enjoyed so long a billet at Vanity Fair.


He is survived by a daughter, Daisy Cockburn; two brothers, author Andrew Cockburn and Patrick Cockburn, a British journalist; niece Olivia Wilde; several nieces and nephews. See more »
