Ace: Hanging with Hitch in Beirut

Ah, the glamorous life of the world’s most famous hobo-hating Ewok:

Yesterday was the high point of the trip. We took a harrowing action-movie race up the mountains of [Shouf] that left several green and sickened and Christopher Hitchens berating the driver. “Now stop this nonsense,” he said after we barely missed a head on collision with a Mercedes. “Start driving like a sane person.” . . .
There we met Walid Jumblatt, leader of the Druze faction and the most stridently anti-Syrian critic, in his villa slash fortress slash Bond Villain Lair.
