Victory is theirs… for now.
Even New York’s finest (most of whom still claim to be Irish) would only offer up a knowing smile.
They even paraded in front of your writer to further declaim their rights to Folly primacy. If possible we will post that entertaining event when your writer figures out how. The Aunties would not be pleased with this result. From the grave they are intermittently telegraphing American precedents worthy of note that will be posted in the near future. Even our daughter beat the drum of victory on behalf of Ireland and enjoyed a good laugh to boot.

In the meantime your devoted writer remains in New York preparing for a talk at the Sotheby’s Institute this evening. More in the offing.
