Driving the Snakes

I am not the least bit Irish and have never had much of an affinity for St. Patrick’s Day — at least as it’s celebrated here in the U.S., where it seems to be all about drinking beer and engaging in over-the-top partying. Besides, the St. Patrick story about driving the snakes out of Ireland is a metaphor for what he actually did: destroy the indigenous Pagan cultures there.

But I can lighten up. I did put on a green sweater this morning. I might even make some Irish coffee tonight.

In the meantime, here is my favorite St. Patrick’s Day cartoon.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
