the agonies of service

in one of the many tributes to brain ( Freudian typing slip? ) cowen on his ascension, brian lenihan opined that he shared with the offaly man the agonies on having to slip into their fathers shoes early, having to forsake a burgeoning legal career.

he makes it sound like young fianna fail turks are members of hereditary monarchies who simply have no choice but to serve, and rule over the great unwashed. one just hopes that lenihan( whatever about cowan ) is able at some stage in his life to reconcile himself to the great disruption that occurred, and his selflessness, and accept the lowly station that he occupies in the minister for justice.
