Faith restored by Mr Myers

Fifty or 60 years ago, when I was at school, there was a saying which always stayed with me: the pen is mightier than the sword.

Unfortunately, after watching terrorist murderers and liars for the last 40 years, it was looking like the pen had no ink left.

Then I purchased The Belfast Telegraph on August 6, and inside was an article by Kevin Myers taking Gerry Adams to task about Afghanistan.

What an article, what a man. Exactly what journalism is all about - truth and honesty and, in this case, bravery. Someone give this man a medal.

Thank you, Mr Myers, for restoring my faith in journalism again.
