Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, Guinness is sponsoring a site gathering names for Petition 3-17 in support of making March 17 an official holiday in the United States.
Last time I checked, they had 258,974 names on their way to their goal of one million people. The site has already been noted by the Washington Post, the Boston Herald and U. S. News & World Report, among others.
One wonders about the reaction of those opposed to the stereotype connecting the Irish and alcohol, not to mention that of people who concentrate on the religious aspects of the day. Erin go Bragh, everyone!
