Re: Christopher Hitchens vs Robert Wright (videos)
I watched 3 1/2 of these video segments. It seems that the topic is the Iraq war throughout. It's a lively discussion that showcases the style of each man. My general thought is that I understand why, on the back jacket of Hitch-22, Richard Dawkins warns against ever debating Christopher Hitchens. He's too agile, too quick, too cool under fire for nearly anybody to have much of a chance against. Robert Wright doesn't have Hitchens' composure and easy eloquence. I would be interested to see them debate the topic that we'll be getting into with Wright's book. They would seem to be less far apart on religion, but would be sure to have some interesting differences.
