Panic on the streets of Dublin

Good analysis from Slugger as always. I have to say, the whole thing took me by surprise. Loyalist march? In Dublin? Huh? But whatever my philosophical objections to the march, what happened in town on Saturday was a disgrace. It wasn't a protest; it was just out-and-out criminality. I agree with the one commenter on a related post who observed of the rioting that "a few people ... throw a few stones then every junkie and scumbag within a radius of ten miles arrives lookin [sic] for a mill." That's certainly what it looked like to me (from the comfort of my own home, admittedly). #link
