Ethnic Intimidation

In observation of Saint Patrick's Day, the civil authorities are going to round up masses of Irish drunks and toss them in the drunk tank.

Good, because that's just where they belong. Ha hah!

But seriously, the cops are just going to be extra vigilant about nabbing DUI perps on a day that has become a big excuse for excessive drinking. Although alcohol consumption has become the focus of March 17, the fact remains that it is still a celebration of pride and accomplishment for a prominent American ethnic group. You don't see the same kind of crackdown on festival days for other nationalities.

That doesn't say as much about our society, I believe, as it does about the Irish character.
As a proud descendant of Irish drunks, I know whereof I speak, BOYO.
