I have had to tell some of you off more than just a few times in the past for dissing Ruth Gledhill, the Times religion correspondent. I have had to point out to you that she is a journalist working for the man and that you have to accept that. And she is a bloody good journalist. That video I posted the other month where she got that bishop to answer a question, that he should not have answered, without him even realising what he was doing, was one of the finest pieces of reporting skill I have ever come across. It was like watching Gielgud playing Hamlet. She is also the only blogging journalist truly committed to blogging and she gives far more to the community than any other journalist. I hope she has got plenty of good stuff from us in return.
So I regard HER POST on my present situation on her blog today (which was not of my instigation) as one of the greatest compliments I have ever been paid. I think it will help me get a job and, if it does not, it has given me such a boost that damn the lot of them - someone good at her job has said that I'm good at my job. That's the sort of thing that can get you through all sorts of crap.
I've posted a comment on Ruth's blog that you might like to check out.
