He won 50.1 percent to Hillary's 48 percent in a state many thought was in the bag for Hillary. On the Republican side, it was Donald Trump once again, winning Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii. Ted Cruz pulled out a victory in Idaho where he campaigned hard. In Michigan, Trump received 36.8 percent to Cruz's 24.7 percent and John Kasich's 24.4 percent. In Mis- sissippi, it was Trump 47.6 percent to Cruz's 36.4 percent. Cruz's lone victory in Idaho had Cruz at 39.8 percent to Trump's 31 percent. The Michigan vote for Kasich in third place keeps him a]i~ going into the March 15th pri- maries in Florida, Illinois, and Ohio. Kasich needs to win Ohio to stay alive. Marco Rubio is starting a free fall. Super Tuesday's biggest loser; he needs to win Florida next week or pack it in. Trump's "Little Rubio" thing is starting to stick. Mitt Romney has thrown him- self into the fire with his recent robo-calls for both Kasich and Rubio. In Ohio, he is telling callers to go with Kasich. In Florida, his guy is Rubio. This is the beginning of the nasty period for the GOP establish- ment which is trying at all costs to prevent Trump from winning the nomination. If they stop Trump at or before the convention, it will doom the Republican Party in 2016 and perhaps could signal the even= tual breakup of the Republican Party forever. Sanders slowed down HiUary this week on her way to the coronation and Trump just keeps on truckin'. Where this all ends is anybody's guess. St. Patrick's Day Parade 2016 This year's South Boston St. Patrick's Day parade will be held on Sunday, March 20~ at 1:00 pro, starting at Broadway Station. The route will follow the same abbreviated course as last year, when huge piles of snow and inclement weather threat- ened the annual celebration of Irish pride. Mayor Marry Walsh and Police Commissioner Bill Evans have ruled that public safety is better served by the shorter route, citing the much reduced number of distur- bances last year and the lower cost of police required to cover the event. While organizers fret about the shorter route and the fact that they will not be able to march past Dorchester Heights, the site of a Revolutionary War battle supposedly also being memorialized [Evacuation Day} on March 17t~, and the home of the late John *Wacko" Hurley, a longtime parade organizer who died last year, we expect that the focus will remain on St. Patrick and other longstand- ing Irish and South Boston traditions. The parade typically features bagpipers, marching bands, colorful floats, military units, Irish dancers, historic Minutemen companies, politi- cians, entertainers, individual marchers, and dozens upon dozens of Irish-American or- ganizations. You might enjoy people-watching as much as the parade itself, as many local celebrities come to watch as well as march in the parade. And spectators are not shy about flaunting their "Irish!" Organized by the South Bos- ton Allied War Veterans Council, the parade has been ~ big Bos- ton event every year since 1901, except for 1993 when it had to be canceled after a blizzard closed down the city. The 1.6 mile route begins at the Broadway T station (Red Line), continues along W. Broadway to E. Broadway, and then ends near the water at Far- ragut Square. With the promise of much more benign weather this year, the usual large crowd (up to a million) is expected. So be sure to get there early, as the shorter route (1.6 miles vs. 3.2) affords fewer prime viewing spots. And don't forget to wear your green!
