the o'conner chronicles#3

I did get a reply from Cormac. He basically said that his comments on transcendence had been misunderstood (to a certain extent) and that in no way did he wish to diminish the humanity of a first rate chappie like myself. Non first rate chappies though seem to be fair game.

I suppose all the perpetrators of the vileness outlined in the Ryan report are all first rate chappies and chappesses and the extra dimension added to their lives by belief in god simply make them immune from prosecution.

Funny old world innit? Not saying what you mean. Not meaning what you say.

Leads to this sort of thing.

"..into the hole he goes". Brilliant. I miss Dave Allen.

Simon: Me too. He was a comic genius. The way he conjured the image of the nun 'flapping' with simple gesture and expression; and his evocation of the fear and awe and powerlessness of the little boy faced with such nonsense. Classic Allen.
