    Very few here will pass much remarks on any thread unless the following is adhered to:

    Title the thread meaningfully, so as to indicate content
    Make an opening point or question to encourage response
    State your own opinion
    Provide background or links to background to support the point or inform readers.
    (These things really do make better threads)

    Now, who is Mary Ellen Synon ?

    Are you Mary Ellen Synon by any chance?
    Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.

    I just looked her up and found this example of her work:

    "It is time to suggest that these so-called Paralympics . . . are - well, one hesitates to say 'grotesque'. One will only say 'perverse'ůSurely physical competition is about finding the best - the fastest, strongest, highest, all that. It is not about finding someone who can wobble his way around a track in a wheelchair, or who can swim from one end of a pool to the other by Braille." She advised the disabled and blind to "play to your competitive advantage" and added: "In other words, Stephen Hawking shows his wisdom by staying out of the three-legged race."

    I dont think that needs any comment really- let just say her pulitzer might be lost in the post

    No no. You are on the right site. It's just me.. I don't read much.
    If you change the thread title to 'Mary Ellen Synon - journalist or Sensationalist'

    Then link to say wiki, or some articles she authored, you might get some debate going.
    I'm only trying to help.

    Anyway , as this is my last post on this website, I wish you well with yours.
    Enjoy the referendum.
    And enjoy the silly aul pencil.
