And here is the same conversation with, if you will, a few sheets to the wind:
Meanwhile, I have been cutting loose in my own ways.
While we’re on the topic of St. Patrick’s Day, let me just note how gut-bustingly moronic it is of the mayor of Boston, among others, to abstain from the Parade because of the “exclusion” of an LGBT group demanding a place amongst them. Is the St. Patrick’s Day parade now also to highlight Italian-American culture? Imagine if the headline read, “Mayor pulls out of St. Patrick’s Day Parade due to exclusion of Greek Nationalist and Tea Party groups.” I assure you that I’d have to down a lot of Irish car bombs before the outrage so much as leaked into the viscous, oily bloodstream of the MSM. When any public event is required to be as much about one’s preferred genital hobbies as it is about the namesake of that event, we’ve not only lost the language, but also our minds.
