Another glorious day in the corps....

The overwhelming sense of distress over our economy, and moreover the sense of our future being mortgaged, as well as the governmental language of 'acting in the best interests of the country' after decades of collusion with investors and the now defunct banking system, has deepened the country's cynicism and anger and sense of being 'had'. In one sense there is a part of me that is not surprised by all that has happened, but another part feels terrible disappointed that Ireland wasted a chance for real prosperity on the pursuit of a kind of vacuous nouveau riche wealth.
