We note with keen regret that this week marks the final appearance of Christopher Hitchens’s column, “Minority Report.” We have been publishing Christopher for more than twenty years, and the relationship with him has been a rewarding one for this magazine and for our readers. That is testimony to the fact that Christopher has always been completely free to express his views, and he has honorably ventilated differences he has had with the editors. We will miss his eloquent and passionate voice and his elegantly crafted prose.
