    the English were pretty freaking cold (one might even say Libertarian or Republican) about the deaths. What always amazes me is what did the English expect when they started fighting back the only way they could - terrorism born of being mashed under the English heels for so long. Rage like that at the treatment they had at English hands gets passed through the generations and takes a long time to die off even if the situation is better. We see it in our Civil War results over a hundred years on.

    I was reading something about a new Irish Diaspora in addition to the one from Greece. Is it really happening and will we see the most daring leave thier homeland for here? When is Scotland, Wales and Ireland gonna break free or are they gonna stay as part of Great Britain. I am not down on the English ... I love thier literature and mysteries... But man they can be arrogant to the non-English.

    Anyway what I really would like is books to read : title and author please. Anyone else reading Christopher Hayes new book about the 1%. It is pretty good.
