It's Groundhog Day. I hope that Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see the shadow of an early demise via kidnapping and riding in a pick-up truck plunging into a quarry this year.
By the way, this was the reaction of one Cleveland television station to Phil's forecast of an early spring. It conveys the true meaning of the day.
