Going Green

Hey Everyone.

I hope you all had lots of fun last night, celebrating the day that St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland or something like that. I'm not exactly sure how that goes. One thing I do know for sure is that he celebrated by putting up tacky green plastic banners with shamrocks on em, wearing green felt hats, confusing himself for a Scot, colouring his beer an unholy green colour, and then drinking said beer until he was drunk off his face even though he didn't really drink much any other time of year. I would be very disappointed to find out that you did anything stupid and broke with any of those traditions.

In preparation for a trip to Ireland, my neighbor has been sharing bits of this with me: How the Irish Saved Civilization.
E.g. "the greatness of Patrick is beyond dispute: the first human being in the history of the world to speak out unequivocally against slavery." (p114)
