Subject: RE: A St. Patrick's Day Mudcat Oath
Jim Krause, don't worry about not being Irish, after all, St. Patrick wasn't either. And you have the privilege of being Orange without being Irish.*g* The Orange/Green conflict doesn't mean as much in my town anymore as it once did. I'm told that, many years ago, a distant uncle of mine would cut out a vest for himself from a paper grocery bag (that's how long ago this was, they were all apparently an orangish color) and go out to the bars for a little recreational brawling.
Me, what Irish in me is Orange, but I'll celebrate anything I can get away with, so it's the whole range of songs for me tonight, from traditional to pseudo-Irish stage songs, topped off with a drop of something good that I'll neither mix with food coloring nor beer. Have fun, all.
