Everlasting Peace?

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Major development in the Northern Irish peace process today. Will it last? Are both sides seriously committed to making it work? Can blood-stained enemies truly co-exist together?

I want to say “yes” — and not just for the sake of the Irish. I wish it for the sake of the Americans and Iraqis, as well. Here’s hoping we learn from their example — both the good and the bad — to find a lasting peace.

St. Patrick’s Day

Monday, March 19th, 2007

I didn’t want the holiday weekend to end without encouraging you guys to read the history behind I first heard this story when I was in high school and I thought it was the most romantic story I had ever heard.

I still do.

Read it and find out why every girl in my high school class spent at least one Friday night praying to St. Patrick. I can vouch for its validity.

It’s more inspiring than Oprah and any “Secret” that she might know. Promise.

Goin’ Up tonight!

Friday, March 16th, 2007

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Eve to everyone! The holiday has gotten into full swing in Chicago, with the river already dyed green and the big parade planned for tomorrow. My favorite band, Great Big Sea, is performing at The Riviera tonight. If you’re not familiar with them, GBS is a celtic-inspired band from New Foundland. They mix traditional Irish music with modern-day folk and have one of the craziest fan bases around. (Think Grateful Dead followers, but swap acid with Guinness and you’ll get the picture.) Can’t wait to raise a pint with the Great Big Sea faithful tonight!

Anyone else got interesting plans out there?
