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!
