US-IRELAND-ST PATRICK'S The Irish never had it easy in NYC and are once again being subjected to widespread discrimination as a heat wave appears to be melting many of Ireland’s fair-skinned transplants. According to the Irish Voice, it’s not just nature’s fault, but NYU’s too. The school doesn’t permit A/C’s in the dorms, creating hellish conditions for one student: “All we have is a fan and now they want us to get rid of that. I’ve lost seven kilograms in body weight in the past three days, I’ve never seen sweat like it and they want us to get rid of the one bit of relief we have.”
