SENATOR David Norris enlivens the national scene. He has something to say on every subject, from James Joyce -- to equality -- to fashion. His opinions can be profound, provocative or both, but it's guaranteed -- they are never dull.
Yesterday, when he announced his intention to seek a nomination for the presidential election in the autumn, he promised to be "deeply serious" but also promised "fun". A characteristic, and splendid, beginning.
On the serious side, he said that he would make mental health, culture and enterprise his priorities.
