St. Brigid & Bill Murray

It is Groundhog Day, and people everywhere will be wondering if Bill Murray woke up and saw his shadow.

It is also--or so we thought--St. Brigid's Day. Wrong. The feast day for St. Brigid, one of the patron saints of Ireland, was yesterday. Brigid is, among other roles, the patron of dairymaids, cattle and babies, and among her miracles was turning water into beer. Pour a Guinness in her honor.

Meanwhile, the wretched news continues to seep out of Washington. Regarding the current battle between the White House and the FBI, the Trump team is fortunate that J. Edgar is no longer running the bureau. Hoover, who kept presidents and attorneys general terrified for decades, would have had dossiers on all those guys. "Representative Nunes? We have some photographs here..."
