Happy Saint Patrick's day!
It's my turn to be offended, if I hear one more story about Irish drunks, someone is going to get a potato peeler right up their arrrr, you get the picture. The intelligent not for profit stations will run stories regarding the history of Ireland but the rest will just pull out the same old stereotypes, shouting drunk people, drinking green beer while wearing cheap plastic leprechaun hats. Yesterday one radio news station played what was supposed to be Irish music just before each commercial break; however each one of the songs the station played was about getting drunk. That was offensive and insulting. There are plenty of songs they could have picked instead of just all drinking songs. Yes there are a lot of Irish people who do drink but there are many more Irish people who will not be in the bars tonight. Anyway Happy St Patrick's day! Now did anyone see where I put my potato peeler?
