Proposition 3-17

My personal favorite thing about Guinness: that they spent two years actively campaigning to make St. Patrick’s Day a U.S. federal holiday. It’s called Proposition 3-17, and while they seem to have given up on making it a reality, that’s no excuse for the rest of us to treat today as a day off. Particularly in Boston, where Evacuation Day conveniently coincides with St. Paddy’s Day.
