Last week’s question
The river that runs through which U.S. city is traditionally dyed green for St. Patrick’s Day?
 
a. Boston
b. Chicago
c. Cleveland
d. Milwaukee
 
The correct answer is B. The Chicago River has been dyed green every year since 1962. A couple of plumbers discovered the orange dye they used to detect leaks and illegal discharges of sewage into the Chicago River turned the water Irish green. They brought the news to Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Local 110 business manager Stephen Bailey, who then asked around and ultimately received permission to try and dye the river green. The union dyes the river green every year. In addition to the Chicago River, the San Antonio River in Texas and the Liffey in Dublin, Ireland are dyed green for St. Patrick's Day.
