Rest In Peace (Alternative View)

Any reluctance to speak ill of the dead seems to have been overcome by the Irish Times. Writing about Alex "Hurricane" Higgins who was buried yesterday in Belfast, the paper observes:
The creature known for years as Alex "Bomb Scare" Higgins - not for his Belfast links, rather for his capacity to clear a bar in seconds - was such an appalling, selfish, self-centred and uncaring-for-others monster that any attempt to cosmeticise his legacy would've been so futile as to deter even the most mealy-mouthed or charitable of essayists.
