You have to wonder if St. Patrick (or Naomh Pádraig) was ever called "Patty" and if he was, whether he hated that nickname. Anyway, good on ya if you wore your green today. If you didn't, watch out for the pinching old ladies, and remember, you can't hit them back.
If I were a developer, instead of pretty pictures of the development layout or what the "Community Center" will look like, I'm going to make sure that everyone knows where the necessary sewage plant and ingress/egress locations are. This shoulder shrugging and "it'll be fine" just doesn't cut it, and is the cause of a lot of problems. Also, I hope that those who wish to preserve (i.e., seize) parts of the Doughoregan Manor recognize that 75 acres have already been put into preservation.
To test your consistentcy in propery right discussions, I suppose that those looking to protect the Carrolls are also interested in letting Ricky Bauer (that is just too close to Ricky Bobby) put a cell phone tower up on his property? I say more power to him, but I think that some of the Carroll advocates may balk at supporting this kind of land use.
Ehrlich continues the longest game of footsie in the history of footsie (and gives a fist pound to a creepy guy with an American Flag shirt).
From the "Are you sure that's not from the Onion?" category of news, comes this article about Baltimore City's ban on plastic bags. Why don't you ban "homicide"? You already did? How'd that work out for you?
Speaking of The Onion.

HowChow posts about local restauranteurs brought to Chuck Trucks and the best coffee in town.
Wordbones wishes you a happy St. Patrick's and serves as the local shop talk guru (there's a hole in the blog market, ladies...or fashionista males).
Hedgehog (LAHC) notes that former County Exec and Governor candidate Chuck Ecker will be at a campaign event for John Bailey, who is running against Liz Bobo.
Interesting piece about free food and giveaways (sorry, no tips on receiving free food, just a discussion).
To step into the national muck for a second, I think Congress is dancing a dangerous line here. If they really do use this parliamentary "end-game" maneuver, they will violate the most basic premise of our democracy in order to pass some of the most impactful legislation our country has ever seen. That's scary.
Desmond Tutu says to get over yourself and love all people regardless of sexual orientation.
That's all for now. I'm going to go work on my bracket and figure out whether today will be a full day.
