The view from the other side of the pond...

I've been spending a few days in Ireland on family business. Not much news on the American elections on this side. Most friends support Hillary. The Clintons are considered big friends of Ireland because of Bill's support of the peace process in Northern Ireland.

The big news here is the death a few days ago of a well-known model. It appears the 24-year old died as a result of cocaine. Lots of talk about the problem of drugs in Dublin. I guess it is partly a by-product of new found affluence.
