Source data.

Authorial usage of personal nouns and pronouns, such as “I have never read…” were not included. Months with blank data contained no direct references to the personal life of Mr. Hitchens. Months marked “0” contained zero words prior to the first verb, noun or pronoun referring to the personal life of Mr. Hitchens.

    Excellent investigative work, Mike. The numbers speak for themselves – Christopher Hitchens is far more important than what Christopher Hitchens is assigned to write about.

    Clarification: Christopher Hitchens is far more important than the aggregate importance of the various subjects Christopher Hitchens is assigned to write about. Except for anti-Semitism. He’s more important than that.
