    I followed the links in the credits. Oooh, Suicide Squad is getting a collection, coming out in August! Yeah! Star Wars: Legacy look good. Syn says, "frakken." ;) Cool.But there was no link to GrimJack!… Sure it's at the top of every ComicMix page. But that assumes people already know or they're going to go looking. And GrimJack is the definitive work.

    Menachem Begin is regarded pretty much as a Good Guy these days.Paisley may yet leave his past behind him.

    I don't believe Paisley had a change of heart.I believe he acted out of sheer pragmatism.The British government had publicly stated that if power sharing wasn't accepted by last year's deadline, the 6 counties would again be ruled from London. However, they also stated that Dublin would have a large part in the rule. London had never said that before.I suspect that Paisley was taken into a corner & told that if he didn't play ball, Dublin would have a larger & larger roll in the rule of the 6 counties. That said, I believe The Rev Paisley knew when the handwriting was on the wall. Get on side or we'll push you aside.Keep in mind one thing. Historically, the 6 counties have always been a conservative vote stronghold. They never really help the Labour party get elected. The British people currently have a government that has something to gain by returning the 6 counties. I think they would be happiest if they could be PERMANENTLY rid of the 6 counties. If the conservatives are re-elected, it will probably all regress.
