As long as Ireland is welcoming parades of foreign representatives, perhaps it is time for the Ku Klux Klan to march down O’Connell Street. They could take on the role of victim, weeping over their Civil War dead and the few who suffered in the civil rights movement. Surely the people of Dublin would appreciate the great unfairness, the concessions given to black folks and Catholics and Jews, at the expense of the majority. Mr. Donaldson et al. would fit right in, and their orange sashes would provide a lovely splash of color amongst the white robes.
Without doubt, the loyalists have won the Grand Gesture of the Month Award. Taking a page from the KKK, they've adopted the heavy mantle of victimhood and then cannot understand why they are so maligned. Oh Lord, don't let me be understood?
It must have been a psychic connection that made me realize that Christina Hogrebe had not responded yet - I got the rejection today. Not a word about the writing or anything concrete. She turned it down because she doesn't feel that she could sell it. Close with the usual subjective business, someone else might take to it, but the end of the line has come. Okay, who else can I query at Jane Rotrosen's agency?
