Quoted: Christopher Hitchens disavows Gore Vidal
"I have no wish to commit literary patricide, or to assassinate Vidal's character ... which appears, in any case, to have committed suicide."
-- Christopher Hitchens on his former friend Gore Vidal in the new issue of Vanity Fair. Hitchens says Vidal, whom he once compared to Oscar Wilde, has devolved into a graceless crackpot (they split over Vidal's 9/11 conspiracy theories) and Hitch no longer wants to be called his intellectual heir.
