Free Markets, Free People
While my patronymic is McQuain (totally Scottish), I am a true Scotch/Irish descendant (and, of course, quite proud of being a true redneck as defined as “Appalachian Scotch/Irish”). My mother’s maiden name was Mackey – about as Irish as one can get. So, with my ties to the auld sod established I wish everyone a happy St. Patty’s day (especially you, Pogue).
Of course none of that really matters today, since this is the one day of the year that everyone is Irish.
I’ll be having a Guiness, or two, later in the day to celebrate everyone’s elevation for the day.
