The fiftieth anniversary of Bloody Sunday is today

I am reminded of John Stuart Mill’s remark:

I know tolerably well what Ireland was, but have a very imperfect idea of what Ireland is.

Still true!  That is from one of Mill’s letters.

Here is my earlier post on my summer visit to Derry.  Remember the 1970s, when people thought there was a reasonable chance of peace in the Middle East, but that the Ireland problem could never be solved?
