So in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I have a few examples of our coverage of the Irish diaspora:
An Irish-American Reader Complains About Fulford's 's "Ganging Up On America." a response to my take on Gangs of New York. Ireland: Though All The World (Specifically, The Irish PM) Betray Thee. by Martin Kelly
When Everyone Is Irish,The Times (London, England), March 21, 1987 By Peter Brimelow, explaining St. Patrick's Day to the English.
And more from my last year's post on St. Patrick's Day here.
By the way, some schools, out of their fear of anything connected with the Christian religion, have started referring to this as "Green Day"—one blogger writes [March 17, 2008]
Happy Green Day
Or, as it's NOT known at my son's school, St Patrick's Day. Are we so afraid of anything remotely religious now that St Patrick has been demoted to just being Green?
