APPLE VALLEY REVIEW
Saturday is my second birthday. That’s what my mother told me growing up anyway. As an Irishman named Patrick it has always annoyed me that other ethnic groups continually try to usurp my day and use it as an excuse to party hearty. We Irish take no mind of Columbus Day, Cinco de Mayo, or Bastille Day so why can’t we be left alone to enjoy our bacon, cabbage, potatoes and beer in peace?
