The levels of Boston Irishness

BostonMaggie catalogs the different levels:

... Hunter Green: Family stayed in Dorchester . Thinks the South Shore is the Cape. Knows every Irish bar in the city. Wasn't happy this years St. Patrick's Day falls on Saturday, because it's a Suffolk County holiday and he'd normally have it off anyway. ...

      Fluorescent Green?

      By on

      Very much in the grand tradition of Irish columnists like Mike Barnicle. Rates a Fluorescent Green.

      I credited Mr. Thornton once

      I credited Mr. Thornton once I found out his identity and emailed him about it. He came out to my blog and left a comment.
      Here's a link

      Here's an excerpt of his comment.
      "Yes, I'm the author of the "Boston Irish" piece Maggie thought enough of to post. And no, I'm not offended she didn't attribute it to me, though I do appreciate that she took the time to redo it when she found out it was me."

      Stealing

      I didn't log in when I posted the previous comment. Heaven knows I want to be verified!

      I don't get this. If I went to BarStool Sports and did some cut and paste & didn't credit, I'd understand. But I got an excerpt of his column (uncredited) in an email. I noted that it was an email on the post. Once an anonymous commenter (probably the same one who left the link here) came out with a link to Jerry's column, I updated the post, credited him and emailed him. Jerry was totally fine with it, to the point where he came out and gave me his "Benediction Papalis".

      I appreciate the thought behind the link, Adam.............but I might have been better off when no one noticed me.

      BTW, you should follow the link to the original, it's funnier than the list alone.
