Cynicism corrodes the soul
Sir -- I was shocked by the essay on cynicism in the article by John Drennan (Sunday Independent, June 6, 2010).
The article, beginning with the presidency, wandered around rather aimlessly, mentioning leading politicians.
The presidency to him, seemed to be all about gardens and garden parties at Aras An Uachtarain. Not one single mention, for example, of the influence the President and her redoubtable husband have had on the scene in Northern Ireland.
