Boston's "Saint Patrick's Day Breakfast:" maybe it's time to call for the tab and end it

On the Sunday before Saint Patrick's feast day, Boston pols get together and basically make idiots out of themselves at a publicized breakfast. I don't know why. But it's really getting old. What especially seems unnerving to me is that this year, the pols -- many of them Catholic -- didn't seem to care that their antics took place on Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion. Give it up, folks. Yes, Patrick is the patron of Boston, but this stuff has little to do with sainthood.
