It was a bit of a struggle out bed this morning after the night before. First stop, Good Morning Ulster. Seamus McKee picked up many of the threads from last night’s debate so deftly thrown on to Slugger by Richard. It’s strange. Most of the time I post stuff on Slugger, people around me rarely ask about what’s up there, or why I said this or that. This morning within twenty minutes I met two senior politicians, who quizzed me (gently) about the interview. However powerful the net may become, it still doesn’t have the reach the power or the immediacy of radio.
