happy belated st. patrick's day

I respect kindness to human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law; I have a total irreverence to anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper, and old men and women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer.

--brendan behan [borstal boy; avon, 1958]

[an aside. i think i was irish in a former life for the love and shared affection i have for ireland, its music and its poetry and poets. can't explain that one. i just do.]
