Yes, that is the question,
isn’t it? In the meantime
we go on living this half-life in this
murdering, mouldering city. Many are
leaVing, of course,and nearly and nearly every
street has houses with For
Sale
notices, like tin flags.

Another Irish emigration is
taking place, hundreds every
week flee from this run-down
city that has not yet found
its identity. Will it ever?

That’s one of the things
I’d like to discuss when we
next meet. Look after yourself.
