Layah BS: the people who make the corned beef (67* d) RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef 14 Mar 05

I'm sorry I didn't mean to offend with my comment. Nor did I intend to imply that Irish are drunks. I report what I read in a (it looked to me) scholarly book, but I haven't personally studied the matter. I also would like to emphasize that the book was not discussing people now, but mostly first generation immigrants in the early 1900s. The book didn't say they were alcoholics either, it wasn't that they drank more than the other two groups, it was that there was a connection to their history, a feeling of being Irish that was attached to certain drinks more than certain foods. I'm sorry that I wasn't clear, and implied something I didn't intend.
