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.
