Happy St. Patrick’s Day
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
I had to go downtown to pick someone up at the train station so I figured I’d go a little early and cruise for features. I walked across the street to the statehouse because; on holidays they usually have something that’s catered festive and picturey. The House did not disappoint. They were having a St. Patrick’s celebration complete with Shawn Fagin (above), a bag piper from the Rhode Island Highlanders Pipe Band. I heard a folk singer belting out “Parting Glass” and the Irish tri-color was hung behind Speaker Murphy (not pictured).
Now, what I want to discuss is how comprehensive this St. Patricks Day celebration was.
It was very comprehensive.
With all the trappings one expects to find at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration
Now, nobody was falling down or anything and I’m hardly a watchdog journalist. But my last name is Conaty and I was wearing one of those heavy Aaron knit sweaters and it does get hot in the house chambers. I guess what I’m saying is… I could have used some refreshment.
It’s not like I have to be at work or anything tomorrow.
just like 10.3% of your constituents.
Party foul gentleman. Get to work.
