Being a subscriber to Harper's Magazine, I have downloaded some of his articles for that magazine as PDF files that I can send to people offlist. I got his 1982 piece, "The Lord and the intellectuals: They're too smart to believe in God" which anticipates his 2007 book, "God is not Great".. I got his 1986 article, "Wanton Acts of Usage: Terrorism: A cliche in search of a meaning" which IMO is very good and completely demolishes the kinds of arguments that Hitch would later promulgate after 9-11. I also got his two-part article on Henry Kissinger where he documents Kissinger's criminality.

Is there a collection, or some examples that illustrate this? (Not trying to be aggro, I'd just like to see what I missed.)
