St. Patrick’s Day – Mapping and Graphing the Irish Influence

St. Patrick’s Day – Mapping and Graphing the Irish Influence
May your blessings outnumber The shamrocks that grow, And may trouble avoid you Wherever you go. -An Irish Toast ​ ​In a few days, the world will see green. Not green with envy, mind you, but green with shamrocks, leprechauns, cabbage, and of course, beer. St. Patrick's Day, the 17th day of March, the one day when everyone is Irish and celebrates I...

What Does It Take to Be a Citizen?

I’ve been hearing a lot recently about immigration and what it takes to be a citizen. While I’m not prepared to spout off about what I do and don’t believe in that respect, I do think that this is a good time to examine the facts behind the citizenship/naturalization process in the United States.
