Dear Editor, Kinky Friedman's quote below is extremely offensive and racist. He should immediately apologize. I bet he would be quick to complain about a Semitic slur! Alcohol may be his source of spirituality but certainly not ours! “Guinness is the drink that kept the Irish from taking over the world. It would be unthinkable not to have a Guinness during a St. Patrick's Day parade. In fact, it would be spiritually wrong," Friedman said in a statement issued by spokeswoman Laura Stromberg [“Quote of the Week,” News, March 17].
