I’m a bit short of time today, so blogging from me will necessarily be slow. Regarding comments, there is no settled consensus on Slugger, except we ask that you fight hard and fight clean! We had more than five thousand unique visits and 50,000 hits yesterday, thanks mostly to Glenn Reynolds‘ link to Newt’s erudite piece on the blame game! Welcome to our new readers! Even if Northern Ireland’s not your thing, we also blog things outside our small six counties every now and again.
