Ian Paisley's head explodes

Or rather it would if he saw this headline in Monday's New York Times:

A Voice for the Irish Aggrieved vs. the Irish Police

It's a story about Nuala O'Loan, the ombudsman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland -- closer scrutiny of policing on both sides of the border being a part of the peace process, as we noted in the context of the Republic three posts ago. And of course, to Paisley and his fellow travellers, the PSNI and its clients are Simply British. Can a letter to the New York Times editor, or even the paper's own ombudsman, be far behind?
