More Hitchens hackwork: Stop this man before he writes again!

In Slate, the ubiquitous (and overworked) Christopher Hitchens drops a short, utterly dispensable essay on Arthur Koestler entitled "Darkness at Noon: The novel that made people want to be Communists." Hmmhmmhm, Koestler's account of the Stalin show trials didn't make me want to be a Communist. The world "people" perhaps refers to C. Hitchens, but if you are under contract to churn out thousands of words per day, self-absorption becomes inevitable.

It's well past time for a long vacation, Hitch.
