Completely forgot, and if I'd remembered I probably wouldn't have bothered wearing green anyway. This evening I'm wearing purple. And bare legs! Not outdoors, it's been pretty chilly. But legs are better uncovered than clad in tights. So a happy Paddy's Day to you too!
Keep on skirting,

Alastair

I think St. Pat's Day may be more important to Americans as another excuse for drinking than it is to the Irish. Same with Cinco de Mayo. I think that maybe our less-than-homogeneous character - as mixed litter mutts in a land not known for breeding - perhaps makes us too anxious for a cultural legacy and ancestral identity. I suppose I'm odd, since my identity as a mutt, as a single letter in a cultural alphabet soup, is just fine by me. I'm curious about my ancestors but I don't think I'd ever jump on an identity bandwagon. I like the fact that America is shepherds pie, a bit of this and that mixed in, however you want to view it...melting pot or salad bowl. And I think it's better that we be committed to America The Idea, and not to America The Ethnicity. I don't think we ever can or should define an ethnicity. We should just chill and ride the tides. Keep faith in The Idea and we will be just fine.

But in the spirit of the day,
Slainte!
