Thread Name: BS: Bad day in Dallas
Subject: RE: BS: Bad day in Dallas
I was naked in front of the fire after my mother had dropped the towel she was drying me with. It was a Friday night in rural Northern Ireland, bath night for me. The moment has been indelibly printed in my brain. I remember my mother sitting down heavily in the armchair by the fire after the "newsflash" came on the TV. It felt like the end of things or at least that has been my enduring feeling prior to Bloody Sunday.
