Kevin Myers' sacking a big loss to journalism

SO, it is carpe diem for writers in the halls of mediocrity.

No more jeu d'esprit now that Kevin Myers has been brutally relieved of his vocation, and it would grieve me if journalists with half his ability should jump on the bandwagon and relish his writing demise.

Newspapers cannot afford to lose a writer of Myers' stature.
