Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, March 16, 2021

As I write this, I’m knocking back a bit of Bushmills on the rocks. Yes, it’s an Irish whiskey in honor of tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration (and yes, I’m going with “that Protestant whiskey” this year; I’ll have to remember to give equal time in ‘09 and have a pour of Jameson).

I’m celebrating a bit early, and in a limited way, because I’m not going to have time to do so tomorrow. If I’m lucky, I may be able to catch a few minutes of the granddaddy of all St. Paddy’s Day parades, on 5th Avenue here in New York. But I’m not counting on it.

Anyway, I’m far from the only one who took a jump on the holiday celebration this weekend. Any holiday where drinking is emphasized is alright in my book.
