IT SEEMS PAT WAS WATCHING A PARADE OF THE KLU-KLUX-KLAN
AND HE WAS DISMAYED WHEN HE SAW HIS FRIEND MIKE STRAGGLING
ALONG AT THE TAIL END OF THE PARADE, SMILING AND WAVING
TO THE ON-LOOKERS.
LATER ON, WHEN PAT SAW MIKE AT THE BAR, HE ASKED HIM HOW
HE CAME TO BE IN A KKK PARADE. MIKE SAID, "PAT, THERE
IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE KKK. IN FACT, THEY ARE A
GREAT BUNCH OF BOYS. AND YOU, PAT, WE'VE HAD THEM ALL
WRONG. THEY ARE NOT AGAINST US IRISH CATHOLICS. THEY
ARE NOT EVEN AMERICAN CATHOLICS. THEY REALLY ARE ONLY
AGAINST THEM DAMNED ROMAN CATHOLICS!"
