03/18/10 - A NC Reader Urges Everyone To Check Their State's Sex Offender Registry

Re James Fulford's Blog Post: Happy Saint Patrick's Day, 2010

An angry reader writes:

You people are complete hypocrites.

You rant about multiculturalism but you support St. Patrick's Day.

By the way I agree with you about multiculturalism.

Why should my tax dollars go to celebrate a foreign holiday?

Should we celebrate every other foreign holiday?

James Fulford writes: Saint Patrick's Day has been celebrated in America since 1737, and isn't really multicultural anymore. Furthermore, we don't actively support it, the way we do Christmas and the Fourth of July. We're only hypocritical when we (insincerely) wish people a Happy Cinco De Mayo…and then suggest that they might want to celebrate it at home with their families.
