But nu Ihis one day of Ihe year -holy St. Patrick's Day- I'LL- Irishman becomes an Irish- man. And on Ihis day you have In he Irish to know what it is lo be Irish. The oulcr signs, of course, can ho seen hy all. The Irish- man overnight grows a foot lall- er ?nd stalks the earlli a gianl. All traffic lights turn green be- fore him, and if (hey don'l, he sees red. Bui Ihis air of majesty is only token evidence of interior change.
