Ho hum....yet another cultural festival at Mission Plaza in downtown SLO over the weekend. This time it was the Pride celebration -- and who can't see the irony in Teh Gays partying like it's 1999 on the steps of the still-an-active-Catholic-parish San Luis Obispo Mission? Pretty sure Pope Ratz is firmly against that sort of behavior (if you know what I mean).
Last week it was the Greeks breaking glasses and drinking ouzo while standing on their heads.
What I want to know is, when are the Irish going get their turn in Mission Plaza? Seems like we're relegated to the bars and the gutters every March 17. Last time I partied on the front steps of a church it was probably 4 o'clock in the morning or some such.
