There’s been some unusually excellent discussion on Slugger around the London bombs. But it has to be said that recently, especially when there is any mention of the Orange Order, otherwise highly intelligent readers easily match the ignorance found in this snippet overheard on in New York. The golden rule in writing is: write what you know about. Otherwise you run the risk of being satirised on a blog in a faraway country! 😉 Thanks to Two Nations for the heads up!
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.
