And the rest, as they say in the story books, is history. Good old St Patrick, imparting the fabled Luck of the Irish on a kid with middle-European ancestry.

Tom AnselmBy Tom Anselm

The financial results are in by virtue of the U.S Mail and various internet sources: Christmas is over. That-there goose that was getting fat a mere few weeks ago… well, he has been eaten.
