Time to put misery behind us and focus on the future

GOOD stuff in the Sunday Independent today -- Jody Corcoran on why Brian Lenihan was (rightly) worried that Joe Duffy's dissing of the banks could do damage; Jerome Reilly on Tim Pat Coogan's must-read memoir; Maeve Sheehan on the murky agendas of some of the activists in the Corrib Gas dispute.

They all pale beside the shocking prediction of editor Aengus Fanning, a Kerryman who treacherously tips Tyrone to win ("Tyrone's do or die mission will be Kerry's undoing."). This will get him into terrible trouble.

And while I am very fond of Aengus; as Confucius said, there is something in us which is not displeased to see a neighbour fall from his roof -- and yes I know there is a long German word for it but, as I tell my screenwriting class, telling is not as good as showing.
