Tens of thousands…

Well, it was tens rather than hundreds of thousands, according to Reuters. According to one policeman I spoke to the road from the Best house to the lights at the Newtownards Road was lined with forty thousand. Not bad, for the pig of a day it was. It was quiet and dignified demonstration of mass affection, nothing hysterical. When it passed people simply applauded, then turned and walked home. Just like a football match.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
