Alison:
Thanks for posting the links. I have been looking back over them, and it is a remarkable example about how truth and reconcilliation works. I can say looking back, that Richard (the solisitor) and GeorgeH and I have really come to a better understanding of each other through the process, and speaking for my self, have developed a long distance friendship. For those who must live several streets apart the process is vital, becasue part of the fustration of the past decades has been a result of the governments of several large nations keeping the underlieing truths hidden. When diverse members of the Irish and British working class wake up to the degree that we have been pauns in the games of those who run the game, well, we will find more in common with each other than with the leaders, eh?
Thanks again
Larry
