Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

If you're lucky emough to be Irish, then you're lucky enough. Thanks to my great grandmother, Katherine O'Leary, I've got a wee bit of blarney coursing through my veins and the luck of the Irish to boot. I can honestly say that I think about my Irish heritage nearly every day, and always have. Never will I forget my visit to the homeland, in 1996. One week, all expenses paid to tour the Emerald Isle. Erin Go Bragh! I took 12 rolls of film and will no doubt revisit the album today to reminisce a little. Didn't make it to Dublin though, spent most of the time around Lake Killarney and the southern coast. Next time!

The History Channel has some great info about St. Patty's Day. Check it out!

St. Patrick's day exists to remind the Irish that they would be no more than a bunch of pagans if a Scotman didn't come to take pity upon them. Of course Patrick might have been Welsh and not Scottish. But in any case the Irish are truly debtors to the folks on that big isle to their east and they repaid that debt many times over. May we all remember to owe no man anything except the continuing debt of love. That is the Great Commission from an economist's point of view.
