Katydid Frost, Popes and Puns

The Almanac's first frost failed to show, and six more days before the predicted Katydid Frost. Some of us are kind of hoping the Katydids are also wholly confused by the art of forecasting the future, and at the same time kind of hoping that Katydid's are smarter than us.

Interesting too is the general idea in certain quarters that Fortune Tellers are somehow evil. The famed seers of the future in somewhere like Afghanistan are considered devil worshipers by the zealots. There's a sense too amongst some that the Pope shouldn't be talking about Climate Change. It's very weird but it does at least explain why some of us find puns aggravating.
