Meet Jimmy Porter, blogger…

Nice profiling interview with Jimmy of Desolation Row by Red Mum, a happy Northern exile in Dublin. I was intrigued by his remarks on the often poor quality of discussion here on Slugger (though we have had some highlights recently). He explains that it “is sometimes nothing more than an incoherent and unintelligent shouting match between people who are unprepared to compromise and do what Atticus Finch said: “Climb into other people’s skin and walk around in it.” Great overheard after Mass story for Easter…
