The Wild Geese

September 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I suspect I'm unofficially Irish now that I joined The Wild Geese website. The name refers to noblemen who left Ireland during the 17-1800's because of anti-Catholic sentiments in Ireland at the time. Kind of like the physicist brain drain as the Nazi's enacted the Nurenberg laws.

It feels good to be associated here. Read Thomas Cahill's How the Irish Saved Civilization to get more of a perspective on how the Irish came to love the written and spoken word.
