Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

When I was in elementary school, on St. Patrick’s Day I would always write Seamus O’Eltringham on my tests and worksheets. The teachers thought it was cute, and I didn’t lose credit. “Eltringham” is Welsh, but I’m more Irish than I am anything else, so I felt comfortable doing it.

I awoke today to hear about President Barack Obama’s… excuse me, President Barack O’Bama’s Irish ancestry. There’s a comment about political opportunism and messaging in there, but it takes a back seat – because for one day a year, everyone gets license to be Irish – even folks with a lot less Irish in them than our President.

Of course, this may be taking it a bit to far…

…But it’s good for a laugh. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
