    I wish I could take the Green Line - interesting mix of people, lots of students.  But I live in the South End and work in Charlestown, so there's no alternative.
    One thing I loved about your diary is that I've always known I was mostly WASP but I love Ireland and the Irish and I've always wished to be more Celtic and I switched at an early age from Protestant to Catholic, though now Russian Orthodoxy is getting very appealing;)  So I could relate to your feelings on finding you were part WASP.

      to Bunker Hill. I like the people on the Green Line but not the s-l-o-w experience. My grandmother, the not-Irish one, was an odd mix of Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox. That's a story I'll probably write about another time. For her funeral and her mother's we had the Russian Orthodox (from Williamsburg, Brooklyn) out. It was a trip.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
