Eamonn's election analysis hits target

Sir - How reassuring to read Eamonn Sweeney's sane, thoughtful analysis (in the style of Con Houlihan in his prime) after the hysteria of adolescent rage following the US election (Sunday Independent, November 13). I was reminded of Tom Lehrer's right-on Ivy League condescension when he opined: "I don't like country music, but I don't wish to denigrate those who do. And for those who do like country music, 'denigrate' means to put down."
