There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics – Mark Twain (Sorry about the recent repeated use of this quotation, you’ll understand why I used it again by the end of the post.)

The problem with some people is that when they aren’t drunk they’re sober – William Butler Yeats I don’t know how nobody has mentioned this before, and perhaps this is just a sober moment of madness brought on by the Irish Minister for Justice, Michael McDowell. A question suddenly flickered across my mind, would Hugh […]
