St. Patrick’s Shakedown update

After responding to Brian Murphy’s insane letter attempting to shake down local bars, I was curious about how many bars there are along the St. Patrick’s Day parade route. How many are there? Four! Yes, four. And one of those, Merlin’s, caters to a gay clientele. You may recall that companies like Sam Adams and Heineken are dropping their sponsorship of St. Patrick’s Day parades because they do not permit LBGT groups to participate. I wonder whether Mr. Murphy was referring to Merlin’s in his rant. If so, chutzpah does not even begin to cover it. Hypocritical in the extreme comes closer.
