Thank you…

As many of our regular readers will know I’ve been away from Slugger for these last few weeks for family reasons. I have a lot of a people to thank. Not least Paul Evans for his sterling ongoing work on the Slugger Awards and the various Political Innovation events. Not to mention our great blogging team who have kept things perpendicular (as Old Possum might have put it) in my absence.

Can I also thank those many individuals who sent their kind regards and condolences, and in particular I thank Mark, Eamonn and Alan in Belfast for coming along in person last Thursday. It was much appreciated by the whole family.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
