Al Guthrie in America

I thought Allan Guthrie was doing pretty well when he made it into three posts in a row on this blog, but Duane Swierczynski over at Secret Dead Blog has gone full-tilt crazy, and declared it Allan Guthrie week, since Guthrie is in the states to take part in a panel on "Tartan Noir." Ian Rankin and Denise Mina are also putting in an appearance.
What I want to know is, how did Allan Guthrie get a visa? I mean, who decided to let him into the country? If the Department of Homeland Security can't keep Scots out of the country what on Earth can they do? I mean, I've seen Trainspotting and Braveheart, so I'm an expert on Scotland, and I can tell you, I don't think it's a good idea to start letting heroin addicted broadsword enthusiasts onto our shores. We have enough native born heroin addicted broadsword enthusiasts, and they don't need the competition.

It's hard to like guys wearing dresses.

I believe the proper term is "plaid skirt." Scottish men tend to get upset when you call them dresses, and since they're all high and carrying swords, I wouldn't want to upset any Scots.

Okay, it's completely tasteless and not suitable for children, but comes by way of Stuart MacBride: Evil Scotsman. Watch at your peril.

Considering Sunshine's antics in Madison last fall and the video footage of him, perhaps I should pay a special tribute during Guthrie week?
