    Default A Special Day is Coming 2-2-2012

    In the coming New Year, 2012, both Groundhog Day and the
    State of the Union address will occur on the same day.

    This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

    One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to
    an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

    The other involves a groundhog.

    Maybe we can work a trade, the president for the ground hog.
    Politically incorrect in all the right places.

    I don't think so. I live about a few hours drive from Punxsutawney. Used to stop there
    with my buddies on the way to our hunting camp to do grocery shopping. Nice little
    town.

    They love their groundhog and would never trade Phil for the resident in the White House.
    Besides, Phil (the groundhog) is a great tourist draw -- much more so than the other guy.
