The Daily Word in St. Patrick's Day

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Mar 17 2015 11:29 AM ]

Good morning, it’s Tuesday, March 17,

which is St. Patrick’s Day! So celebrate with a bottle of Killian’s, a bowl of Lucky Charms, a shamrock shake, some green beer, and other things that piss off Irish people.

In fact, most of what you know about St. Paddy’s Day is a lie. A LIE.

Brush up on the real St. Patrick here.

And if you seek authenticity, don’t forget to eat your parsnips!

Maybe you can find some at local Albuquerque restaurants that are celebrating Restaurant Week?

Meanwhile, the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade is, for the first time, allowing an LGBT group to march. That’s right, one LGBT group is allowed to march, and it happens to be made up of employees of NBC, the network that threatened to boycott coverage of the parade if they didn’t.

Finally, dentists are excited about the holiday because so many people get into bar fights that result in the loss of teeth. So support your local dental clinic and mouth off to a drunken leprechaun tonight!

Recovery in Aztlan

Review by Suzanne Buck

The Unholy

Paul DeBlassie III’s The Unholy is a frightening thriller that details the struggle between the forces of good and the forces of evil. Set in the mythical land of Aztlan, DeBlassie’s novel is infused with the scents, sounds, and traditions of the author’s native New Mexico.
