Channel Twelve News at Noon

Channel Twelve News at Noon yesterday had "St. Patty's Day" as tomorrow. The "wee leprechaun" was clearly placed on Thursday. Now I know that Tom Campbell is Scottish, but "Tim Strong" is just "lost in Augusta". Can Protestant Irish participate? Or would that bring on some "bombings and riots". Did Deke get "legal advise" before approving what could be a "religious riot"? Just think, if the Irish had not invented whiskey, they could have conquered the world. LOL LOL

To those "Irish Purist",

To those "Irish Purist", please remember that today's Irish menu is "ham and cabbage", not "corned beef and cabbage". Irish could not afford "beef". Corned beef and cabbage is a "Jewish-Irish" tradition. My the Lord bless you Irishmen with a long life to compensate for your other short comings.

deek, depends on what you

deek, depends on what you read. I just read this morning that the Irish ate Irish bacon and cabbage. The Irish that migrated to America couldn't afford that and incorporated from the Jews corned beef and cabbage.

All of our American traditions are nothing related to St Patrick or any original celebrations and yet we still call it a day to celebrate him.

Why don't they have the St.

Why don't they have the St. Patrick's day parade when public school-children can attend? 2pm on a school day discriminates against families with school-age children who would like to attend. It would be an unexcused absence and frankly I don't want them missing school for a parade anyway, no matter how important it is to my (and their) heritage. Why couldn't they have the Mass and parade on the weekend or late enough in the day so school-children could attend? I haven't been able to take my children to a weekday St. Patrick's parade in the past 15 years, despite wishing to do so.
