There is lots of small stories out there, so I thought I would shove them all into one post.
Are you unity curious? The big hunka hunka burning love that is Jamies Doran is. From the BelTel:
Jamie Dornan has revealed he would be “very intrigued” to know what a united Ireland would mean for health, education and the economy.
The Holywood-born actor said he was “very open-minded” to the idea of it.
In an interview with the Radio Times, Dornan said: “The wrong language has been used for too long and they need to tell people how it would look for health and education and economically, and the actual everyday things of life, rather than the sentimentality of it, the flag in it, and all that bulls**t that’s been wrecking the place for many, many years.”
He said of a united Ireland: “I’d be very intrigued to know what that looks like. There’s more of a willingness to talk about it than there has been in my lifetime and I’m very open-minded to the idea of it.”

My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
