Subject: RE: BS: Grit your teeth, the PIRA boys are out
A long time ago, when I first came to Mudcat, I felt like I had found a venue where I could discuss the troubles in the land of my people, learn, teach and help to achieve understanding. The understanding was not only between the parties of the North, but among my countrymen in the States. So many of them suffer from limited vision in this area. I tried in any number of threads to encourage spirited, but respectful debate only to have it descend into horrid argument. I had almost given up. But as I read this thread, and see the contributions of so many, especially Larry Otway and Brendy, I see that we may have arrived there. Congratulations, my friends, on another very good thread, and now I will return to my lurking and learning.

All the best,

Big Mick
