St. Patrick’s Day QF6 — 3/17/06

1. APhoto Fix: Participants in Copenhagen’s annual St Patrick’s three legged race drink green beer in front of Kennedy’s Irish Bar earlier today. Contestants race to drink beer at each of Copenhagen’s 6 Irish pubs while tied at the ankle. (AP Photo/John McConnico)

2. Cartoon Fix: Chuck Asay (New recruiting poster), Signe Wilkinson (Gale Norton goodbye party), and Jeff Parker (Monster growth).

3. Saddam Hussein took the witness stand for the first time in his trial…he spent most of his testimony ignoring all the evidence and insisting he was the real president of Iraq. Among legal experts, this is known as the Al Gore strategy — Jay Leno.

4. My Way Fix: This Day In History here, Today’s Birthdays here, Positive Quote here, and Word of the Day here.

5. Top of the News Fix: Botanist: Irish shamrock a load of blarney here, Senator calls for 100% screening of seaport cargo here, Egg donor business booms on campus here, UK: Restaurants must allow public gay affection here, and blogger posts abortion instructions here.

6. Opinion Fix: E.J. Dionne/Houston Chronicle (Dems fumble Feingold grenade), Kathleen Parker/Townhall (Bringing Catholic Church to its knees), Mort Kondracke/Roll Call (R’s should hope Supreme Court upholds Roe), Noel Stanger/Townhall (The feminist mistake), and Daniel Henninger/Wall Street Journal (More to morality than politics of sex).
