What others were feeling like today #14

1869

Old Irish airs on violin. I love Ireland: were she only not Catholic! But would she be Ireland otherwise?

After yet another foul, fetid week in the history of this country a diary entry from exactly 140 years ago has summed things up better than I can. As have Radge and Gimme.

Thanks for the link, Andrew, but I'm not being falsely modest in saying my words couldn't hold a shitty stick to the other lad's.

Andrew said...

Gimme's is something else, alright. But comparisons are not really necessary, I just liked your honest thoughts.

Radge said...

More of it on Prime Time last night, church apologists and their equivocation angrying up the blood. Drive a man to scotch, it would.

gimme a minute said...

Thanks for the link, Andrew, but really the best post on the matter was this one.

The genius of subtlety.

Radge said...

Speaking of driving a man to scotch...

I must be that 'only person' to whom Doyler is referring. And, given that the lady might be irate if I woke her up by watching that video in bed beside her, I shall remain that way for now.
In other news, how's the repetitve strain injury in Rick O'Shea's right index finger coming along?
