TFP Colum: Chasing The Snakes
In exchanging correspondence with Michael Miller, I was informed that he was assembling material for an edition with a St Patrick's Day theme. Fortunately for me, I was already working on something along those lines, and his direction helped to finish the process. In keeping with the St Patrick's holiday therefore, my effort "Chasing the Snakes" has to do with politicians who, like the patron saint of Ireland, often seem to be given (or take) credit for mythic achievements that were never, or couldn't possibly ever have been done.
But listen, if Michael has been assembling St Patrick's Day efforts for over a week, there's bound to be some that are far better than my own humble effort. In fact, for those that are looking to celebrate the traditions of St Patrick in the Glass City. My advice, as always, is no matter what, to stay away from the green beer. Beyond that, I expect that there will no better place that than the TFP to find out what's going on in Toledo on St Patrick's Day, and where (their offices are over a Irish Pub after all).
But that's the way it is in Toledo and NW Ohio. If you want to know what you need to know and where to go when you need to go, you have only to pick up a copy (or go online for the electronic edition) of Toledo's largest circulation Sunday newspaper and Ohio's best weekly paper (for the third year in a row), the Toledo Free Press.
