A belated Happy St. Patrick's Day to the lot of you
Although this post by Richard MacEnroe at Three Beers Later sums up the way I've come to feel about Irish history, along with P.J. O'Rourke's quip that God gave peat to the Irish because nobody else in the world got drunk enough to try and burn dirt.*
Best wishes to all my relatives who are more Irish than Latino.
More later about my weekend in the hospital.
