Letters to the Editor

"It blowed away, it blowed away; All the crops that I've planted blowed away; You can't grow any grain if you ain't got any rain; All except the mortgage blowed away." Pete Seeger wrote the above, Bruce Springsteen gave it meaning. He called it 'My Oklahoma Home'.

Ophelia came and went. For two days, Ireland hid within its anger. Ministers we never see gave us the full-feathered peacock strut. Then Ophelia blew out up near Iceland... but the same old, same old didn't go with it. Seeger sang about Dust Bowl America of the 1930s. Banks repossessing homes, etc.

Yesterday, the headlines were about the banks' refusal and scandal regarding tracker mortgages here (Irish Independent, October 19).
