Ireland Has A Poet As President

Michael D. Higgins, a poet, has become president of Ireland for a 7-year-term.  This is good news for Ireland, and the world.  Higgins, by all accounts a personable, cultured, and energetic man, will be something of a late Irish Spring - reminding us that the true magic and value of the Irish people lies in their indomitable, creative spirit, and not sheer grubby mercantilism.

Dear Todd

Yes, I'm very pleased that Michael D. Higgins has become president of Ireland. If I lived there I would certainly have voted for him.

Best wishes from Simon
