Monday: Waking up is a stressful time in the O'Gorman household. There is always a risk I might find myself reading something in the morning newspapers that disagrees with my "right-on" principles.

How do I know if something is racist, misogynist, or homophobic? Simple. It is if I say it is.

Some tell me I should just get used to it, but I don't see why I have to. Being this ostentatiously touchy got me the job as executive director of Amnesty Ireland, and the salary's huge, so it's all good.
