YEARS FROM NOW, I'll remember the last Sunday in July 2012 for the start of the Olympics in London and for the fall of the Quinn family in Ireland. Both feature in the three Sunday newspapers I skimmed today.
I enjoy the photo coverage of the Olympics and bought the current Newsweek magazine for its cover shot of Hope Solo, the American goalie. Spectrum Magazine in the Sunday Times covers a collection of images representing the 204 countries participating in the Olympics. They're snapping people from each of the countries, including the shot in my post by Veronique Rolland of Russian-born Szezana Lukka-Biesek on her houseboat near Putney Bridge.
The Quinn family's demise is a work of high drama. Sean Quinn was once the richest man in Ireland and probably the one man made richest during the Celtic Tiger. Today, he's a step away from prison for his contempt of court.  His son was imprisoned on Friday and his nephew is evading a warrant for arrest by hiding out in the United Kingdom.  The story has enough twists and turns for a television series.
Both the Irish Sunday papers I purchase put the Quinns on the front page. The Business Post puts a story about Ireland's new property tax  above the fold while the Sunday Times leads with means-testing child benefit in Ireland. 
I've also written a separate blog item about the rise of e-publishing, drawing on thoughts from an Observer article.
1. Ian Kehoe -- "Infighting erupts among stricken Quinn family" on the front page of the Sunday Business Post, July 22, 2012.
2. Mark Tighe -- "Quinn nephew still on the run" on the front page of the Sunday Times, July 22, 2012.
3. Cliff Taylor and Emma Kennedy -- "Revenue to collect new property tax" on the front page of the Sunday Business Post, July 22, 2012.
4. Sarah McInerney -- "High earners to face tax on child benefit" on the front page of the Sunday Times, July 22, 2012.
