Opinion Leo the Lynx truly has The Killers instinct
In this era of populism there is always one easy answer to all our problems, and the latest easy answer became clear midweek as we listened to Sam. Sam was the young Dubliner who got pulled up on stage to play with popular beat combo The Killers in Malahide on Tuesday night. As Sam did the rounds of radio interviews, one thing became clear. He was the only truly happy person in Ireland. He was the antidote to the cost of living, the protocol, the return of Covid. The rest of us, in our negativity, were tempted to say: “Enjoy it while you can kid. It’s all downhill from here.” But still, you couldn’t take it away from Sam. He was purely, simply, joyfully happy.
