Blogging of a killing…

For months Northern Ireland was old news on the blogosphere. The Northern Bank robbery seemed to light a fuse and the murder of Bert McCartney sees it is well and truly alight. Kitty Litter’s invented a logo for Gerry Adams’s forthcoming visit to the US. Brainster’s been following every bend in the road. The Connolly Column comes from a party loyalist, who believes the IRA must end attacks on innocent people.

Other bloggers having their say include: Armed Liberal, Crooked Timber, another Beowulf, Heretical Librarian, Upper Left, Sierra Sanity, and New Sisyphus. Not all of them have obvious axes to grind.

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.
