Many of these outraged politicians are the same folks who have lead us down the path of foreign oil dependence, fuel inefficiency and global warming denial bought and paid for by oil, coal and automotive lobbies. British soldiers and police would still remain authorized to enter any house in Ireland on the plea of searching for concealed arms. Fireside Tales 529 "An' how did you come by them?" "Why, you see, when you threwn me into the boghole, I felt it mighty cold at first and it was mortial dark, and I felt myself goin' down and down, that I thought I'd never stop sinking, and wondhered if there was any bottom to it at all, and at last I began to feel it growin' warm and pleasant and light and whin I kem to the bottom there was the loveliest green field you ever clapped your eyes on, and thousands upon thousands o' cattle feedin", and the grass so heavy that they wor up to their ears in it — it's thruth I'm tellin' you — O divil sitch meadows I ever seen, and when I kem to my self, for indeed I was rather surprised and thought it was dhramin' I was — whin I kem to myself, I was welkim'd by a very ginteel spoken little man, the dawnshiest craythur you ever seen, by dad I'd have made six iv him myself, and says he, 'You're welkim to the undherstory o' the bog iv Allen, Fairly.' 'Thank you kindly, sir,' says I. 'And how is all wid you?' says he. 'Hearty, indeed,' says I. 'And what brought you here?' says he. 'My big brother,' says I. 'That was very good iv him,' says he. 'Thrue for you, sir,' says I. 'He is always doin' me a good turn,' says I. 'Oh, then, he never done you half so good a turn as this,' says he, 'for you'll be the richest man in Ireland soon.' 'Thank you, sir,' says I, 'but I don't see how.' 'Do you see all them cattle grazin' there?' says he. 'To be sure I do,' says I. 'Well,' says he, 'take as many o' them as your heart desires and bring them home wid you.' 'Why, sure,' says I, 'how could I get back myself, up out of the boghole, let alone dhraggin' bullocks afther me?' 'Oh,' says he, 'the way is aisy enough, for you have nothin' to do but dhrive them out the back way over there,' says he, pointin' to a gate.

Colbert's character is an opinionated and self-righteous commentator who, in his TV interviews, interrupts people, points and wags his finger at them, and "unwittingly" uses a number of logical fallacies.

I believe that the greatest influence on these kinds of novels is not fiction at all, but movies, which have never stopped favoring the 19th century narrative conventions.

President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusion of hope. Red Hugh's lieutenants and their warriors encamped that night under or not far from the walls, and one of the most remarkable battles recorded in Irish history came to an end. The main object of the movie is to make... fun of the western genre of films. At- tempts were made to rally the militia, but they were not only scat- tered but confused at this sudden and unexpected resumption of hostilities. (CHARLES THOMSON, Sbckbtajcy of the Continental Congress) 458 THE IRISH IN THE AMERICAN REVOI.

But the game ended as expected, to An empty goal, a net of stark silence She is gone, she is passed, defeated, Exhausted in the final ward of her game. For more than three quarters of an hour did the regiment keep its position there — without a word from the ranks without a breath almost— whilst shot and shell, and every sort of hellish missile, swept and tore, whizzed and jarred, smashed and plunged through the trees all about, and close to us overhead, in hurt- ling and deafening showers on either flank, in front and rear. 330 A Treasury of Irish Folklore While we lay under that torrent and hurricane of round shot, spherical ball, shell and canister, whilst we patiently submitted to this butcherly rain, Captain Haggerty stood upon our extreme right, con- templating with undisguised satisfaction, the perfect coolness and sub- ordination of the men, the Colonel taking it just as coolly in the centre as though he had been dictating some unimportant order in his marquee at Fort Corcoran, with a pitcher of ice-water close at hand.
