Dublin: It is hard to miss that there is a Notre Dame/Navy football game going on here in Dublin.
I was sixteen years old in the summer of 1969, working my first summer job in an electrical plant about ten miles from my hometown of Drogheda on Ireland’s East Coast.
The night and morning of the moon landing is impressioned on my brain forever. Like 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination I can recall it as vividly as yesterday.
New York is lucky to have in Police Commissioner Ray Kelly a man who inspires confidence and embodies authority when a crisis hits New York.

Irish American Congressman Paul Ryan is a brave pick by Mitt Romney. It makes the election a contest about ideas, the “get government off my back crowd” against the “government is needed to keep our social and economic fabric together” group.
Romney could have run on just attacking Obama’s evident economic failures but he saw that policy was not working. He was seven points down in a CNN poll as late as Thursday of this week.
