Anderson Cooper to Hitchens: C’mon, you’ll pray on your deathbed

Last night was the sneak preview, tonight you get the whole shebang. I won’t spoil the surprise of his response to Cooper except to say that it’s not quite the unqualified denial you might expect. (A follow-up question: Would a deathbed conversion motivated by nothing more than fear of death qualify one for salvation?) That’s at the end of the clip; on the way there, he talks about missing his mother’s phone call before she killed herself and the dispiriting tedium of chemotherapy. Oh, and some health advice from Hitch in honor of the occasion: Drinking and smoking in excess might not be the path to longevity. Which is ironic, because after watching this, I feel like I need to do both.
