So, how do Malians celebrate St. Patrick’s day? Don’t tell me it is a dry party!
Coming to the USA someday soon.

Hillary got off lucky in Egypt. I hope she stays sober if Mali is on the docket.
Ah good old ROP at it again
But we all know that the lashes would have made no difference what so ever
Seems kinda harsh. What did you do, get married?
Yeah, you’re right, I thought of that after I wrote my screed. If the things I did weren’t enough to stop me, 500 lashes wouldn’t have worked.
After fifty lashes, I bet he could really go for another drink!
True for me as well
