Parallels with Bush's 'war on terror'?

Belfast Telegraph’s journalist of the year Mary Fitzgerald is on secondment to the newsroom at the Washington Post. She was at the US Republican National Convention to get David Trimble’s reaction to Karl Rove’s view that the war against terrorism was exactly comparible to that fought by the British against the IRA during the troubles.

On a lighter note, Slugger has word from one New York reader that DT attended the convention in the company of a rather dapperly dressed Ken Maginnis.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
