Joe Simon (standing, with Jack Kirby): "one of the architects of the golden age" of the comic book and co-creator (with Kirby) of Captain America, a WASP superhero, written and drawn by two American Jews, to fight Hitler before America even entered the war.

Christopher Hitchens: author, essayist, journalist, polemicist, gadfly and "left-wing" intellectual (until he supported the war in Iraq and pissed off a lot of people with more limited defintions of "left" and "right").
