No, I wasn't aware of this rivalry. I was informed of it a few days after this was printed. So imagine how it came across to me! LOL! By the way the comment about how it was funny that two people disagreed that drugs were bad was in a joking nature. I guess jokes aren't tolerated though. Oh well.

ok, now I am laughing at myself. I saw one agree and four disagrees - totally looked at that wrong. It doesn't change my reasoning for disagreeing, I just thought I was funny......

KariRose, I only see one disagree with your drugs are bad comment. That was me. I based it on, I admit, my assumption that you didn't understand the "rivalry" between the Germans and Irish this time of year and instead were telling the letter writer you though he was on drugs. Again, that was my assumption so if assumed wrong....well, we all know how that works. :)

My dad was German, and my mom was Irish. Whatever shall I do?

I am confused with the first comment about drugs. I don't understand what correlation it has to the author's editorial???

Of course, being over 60, calls for enlightenment once in awhile. So, perhaps, it is just me or just the mixture of being German and Irish. :)

Love how the Germans of New Ulm have embraced the Irish! Remember, if you are lucky enough to be Irish, you are lucky enough.
