The life of Christopher Hitchens - The Periscope Post

Mon, Dec 26, 2011
US, where he lived. “No evidence or argument has yet been presented which would change my mind. But I like surprises.” Hitchens on atheism, quoted in The Daily Telegraph. He  was born in Portsmouth, in 1949, to a naval commander, and went to the Leys School, Cambridge, and read PPE at Balliol College, Oxford University (where he got a third). A bisexual, he once said that he’d given up having sex with men because he’d lost his looks and no man would have him. He is the brother of right wing journalist Peter Hitchens, with whom he had a bust up, but was recently reconciled. Hitchens is survived by his wife, Carol, and their children, as well as two children from a previous marriage. His career has been noted for his flamboyance, originality and wit – but there was a darker side. Obituaries mourn a fearsome intellect. “Those who read him felt they knew him, and those who knew him were profoundly fortunate souls,” said Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair, quoted on the BBC . A double life. He was a “self-confessed contrarian,” said the obituary in The Daily Telegraph, a man who could always be “relied upon to provide a stream of serious but witty put-downs.”  A “campaignin...

The dead bring history to life - OPB News

Sun, Nov 20, 2011
Some of the visiting spirits had lives in common. Donald McTavish, chief executive officer of the Northwest Trading Co., told of meeting the flaxen-haired wench Jane Barnes at a pub in Portsmouth, England, and inviting her on the 13-month ocean voyage to Astoria. Elsewhere in the cemetery, Jane Barnes recounted her version of meeting McTavish  at the bar where she worked. “I enjoyed charismatic debates with the gentleman as they drank their ale,” said Barnes, portrayed by Angela Sidlo.  “I also was a girl who could take care of herself,” and she agreed to the adventure as long as she was paid, and not as a kept woman. The only woman aboard the ship, she hired on to do needlework for the crew for 30 silver shillings a year. Already sold Arriving in Astoria in 1814, they discovered John Jacob Astor’s men had already sold out to the British company, so they renamed the place Fort George, after their king. (A few trees away, Gabriel Franchere, a clerk with the Astor trading company played by Matt Hensley, told his version of the company takeover – see related story).  McTavish, played by Cliff Larson, said Astor’s company was a mess and at odds with the natives, so he went to work organizing the operation and building relations. He assigned a company clerk, Alexander Henry, to watch over Barnes. But just a month after arriving, McTavish drowned when the boat he was riding in capsized. He was buried in one place, although his body was dug up and moved twice, finally to somewhere on the bluff above town. His headstone, one of, if not the oldest in the Northwest, was taken to Portland and later returned to Astoria and is now displayed in the Historical Society’s museum. He lamented an “unending past life of being moved and moved and moved and no rest. I never did get to retire to my estate in Scotland.” Barnes, for her part, said she grieved the loss of the two men until a doctor took her in as his companion. But she was troubled by a Chinook prince who was infatuated with her. When he threatened to no longer do business with the trading company, Barnes was sent back to England without pay. The ship stopped in Alaska, Hawaii and China. She said she met and married a military man in China and had two children. She returned to Astoria in 1818 to pay her respects to her two benefactors before going on to Montreal, where she finally got the company headquarters to pay her. “I was the first lady of Astoria,” ...
