What's Happening?

What is there to say? A tearful Kenny apologises, announces the appointment of Judge Quirke to "review" redress avenues. No doubt Vinny and the panel may find fault with the perceived delay, but still, it's an important day in the history of our dysfunctional past and our coming to terms with same.




Update on Norm

Norm has gone away, for the sake of his sanity, if nothing else, but ruserious is following him around the vice dens of Outer Moravia like a panting puppy. Un requited love is a sickly thing to see.....

Haven't done this in a while, it sure has gotten more complicated.

Fair play to Norm for the work he does, I wonder do TV3 appreciate his efforts at all?

Email them, if you like to, and let them know what he does to publicise their show?

Astral, norm always gave every poster a benchmarking reward for every post and an unlimited
guarantee on all our debts.

If you could just send the cheques round, that would be great.

Not sure about the 'finally' in the title.

I feel like I've been listening to this stuff every night for months.
