Trip from Wilmette: Off to the
Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade

The "miracle" of dyeing the Chicago River green was accomplished without incident yesterday morning, and it was a glorious sight on the way to the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Because Chicago's non-Irish despaired of their minority status at this festive time of year, honorary Irish heritage was bestowed on all citizens at St. Patrick's Day, so until the actual saint's day, which is next Friday, Chicago will be one large Irish city.

One of the best things about St. Patrick is that he stopped the tree worshiping Druids dead in their tracks--that is, until they made their recent reappearance in Wilmette.
