A Lesser Known Historical Fact
It's St. Patrick's Day. It has been a long time since Plottie watched the Irish Parade up Fifth and Stagger Down Third. We drink beer and eat corned beef, cabbage and boiled potatoes to celebrate the Fourth Century monk who brought Christianity to Ireland.
Little is ever said about the third century rabbi who was bringing Judaism to Ireland, but turned left instead of right and ended up swimming with the herring. History would certainly have been different, though we might be eating corned beef anyway.
