Twenty Major hangs up his satirical gloves…

Twenty’s not exactly gone, but it sounds like he’s had enough after four years and one day of blogging… Have sympathy with the long distance blogger… Some fairly sober valedictory remarks worth reading… He’s even set up a forum for those regulars who want to carry on without him… I think I met him once, at the bar at the second Irish Blog Awards, just after he’d clinched his book deal. Still don’t really know who he is… But he was (at the very least) a decent conversation starter…
