but I did learn something new :

The mistress of ceremonies for the evening was Wanda Sykes, an actress and comedian who grew up locally and got her start doing stand-up while moonlighting from her day job as a procurement officer at the National Security Agency.

I’m sure Vanity Fair will have pics from Christopher Hitchens’ after-party party.  Again.
