Just as creepy is that apparently doctors in the UAE don't have doctor/patient confidentiality.

Or learn the culture/laws especially if you plan on living there.

Organizers of the Boston St. Patrick's Day parade have decided to bar any LBGT and OutVets veterans from the parade. Uh, oh.

- Mayor of Boston calls for an all out boycott of the parade.
- Anheuser-Busch is threatening to pull their sponsorship and not include their clydesdales in the parade.
- Mass Fallen Heroes Executive Director Dan Magoon said in a statement he was withdrawing as chief marshal of the parade this year because he can’t support the council’s decision.
- Republican Gov. Charlie Baker also said he would not participate, while Democratic U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton called for a boycott of the parade. Moulton, who served four tours of duty in Iraq, has marched with OutVets previously.

Boston + St. Patrick's Day Parade = massive party with lots of drinking. One of the most profitable days for bars and pubs in New England of the year. Huge Irish community back there.
