The first hour of our radio show this morning is available here. The hour was almost all about immigration; as you can imagine, the phone lines lit up. The first few minutes, however, were devoted to an even more interesting topic: beer.
Yesterday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune had an interesting article that described conservatives and liberals who gather at local watering holes, and contrasted their drinking habits. The interesting thing was that liberals apparently have socialized beer drinking, while conservatives remain ruggedly individualistic:
When a group of diehard liberals gathers on Wednesday nights at the 331 Club, they all throw money into a kitty and share pitchers of beer. They talk about social issues, local political races, or if all else fails, football.
When a group of diehard conservatives gathers at Keegan’s on Thursdays, they pay their own tabs. And they drink Guinness or an expensive import. Rather than blather on about politics, they turn their attention to a game of trivia.
The “conservative” bar featured in the Strib’s article is Keegan’s Irish Pub, where the Fraters Libertas gang perennially reigns over Thursday night trivia contests. Brian “St. Paul” Ward, with whom I do the radio show along with fellow Fraters Chad the Elder, is quoted–accurately, he says.
Anyway, that’s what leads the show; from then on it’s all immigration. Check it out.
