I see by the local Patch that a local psychic predicts continued growth and togetherness, but we should watch out for a major challenge by June.

Well, there's good news.  I was worried about our continuing growth and togetherness.

Ronald Reagan, probably our greatest president of all time (among those who starred in B movies as a younger man) and his wife consulted a psychic, so there you go.

Tarot cards, crystal balls, tea leaves, the lines on your palm, the lines of people waiting to buy Lotto tickets can any of these foretell the future?  More to the point, how often do you see the headline "PSYCHIC WINS LOTTERY FOR TENTH STRAIGHT WEEK"?

I know it's comforting for some to be reassured by someone who possesses no more knowledge of the future than the kid who wrangles the shopping carts down at the Try 'N' Save, but I just feel bad for people who put their money into the palms of soothsayers in exchange for looking at their palms.
