I'm not Irish but in the United States, everybody is Irish on St. Patrick's Day. There was a celebration at my girls' schools yesterday. Living in a college town, the idea of going to a pub filled with 22 year olds is not my sort of thing. People like listening to traditional Irish folk music here. My preference is different - early U2. They were angry and wanted to change the world. Since decades later they remain the biggest global band even as their music has evolved, I guess they did change the music world. Bono also has been active in global economic development and the band is well known for taking their religious faith seriously.
