Tartan Day.

"THE three rivals in the US presidential race have thrown their weight behind national Tartan Day in America. Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and Republican John McCain, have all endorsed the annual celebration of Scottish-American links."

Good for them, but is it just Mr Smith or have the Tartan Day celebrations been downgraded ... marching down Sixth Avenue rather than Fifth Avenue, the traditional route for "national marches," and on a Saturday rather than a Sunday.

Every nationality gets to walk down Fifth Avenue, but not the Scots this year. Why?
