Adams: the place it takes us all to…

At risk of being slapped down for hubris, Gerry Adams captured something genuinely important probably for the first time in three years, when he said: “In calling upon Unionists to think beyond the moment, to think about the future, we are mindful that we need to do the same. We need to unite orange and green. We need to create a space that unionists can share with us on the basis of equality. That is a huge challenge for republicans.” And on the day itself: “…all us need to think beyond it. We need to think beyond the moment. It is not the leap itself but the place that it takes us all that is important.

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.
