This past Groundhog Day, I published a fairly scathing expose on Punxsutawney Phil and the group simply known as the Inner Circle that girds and sustains his reign as America’s weather-predicting-rodent-of-choice. To be perfectly honest, it wasn’t a very nice piece at all. I called Punxsutawney Phil a liar and a fraud, questioned the motives of the Inner Circle, and even insinuated that my safety and/or life might be in danger for sharing all of this on my blog.
Well this year Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring, and after a beautiful sunny weekend with highs in the 70s, I just wanted to let everyone know that I was completely wrong, and that Punxsutawney Phil and the Inner Circle are wonderful people who definitely aren’t a threat to the American public at all. Phil is never wrong, even if we humans are sometimes too dumb to realize when he is right.
I hope you get the message!
