Top o' the morning to you

Happy St. Paddy's day to you if you are of the Irish persuasion, and my sympathies if you are not.

I had hoped to celebrate the day with Brian Mulroney and Ronald Reagan's (in)famous duet of "When Irish Eyes are Smiling," from the 1985 "Shamrock Summit," but apparently there are some things even YouTube doesn't have. Another thing Youtube doesn't have is a clip from Millers Crossing of Albert Finney ventilating gangsters with a Tommy gun to the tune of "Danny Boy." And my final choice, Máire Brennan's "Against the Wind" disallows embedding. Sigh. Don't be lazy, follow the link.

Update: Oh, never mind, I found it.
