Emerging from his plastic tree stump. watched by hundreds, Punxsatawney Phil, perhaps THE most famous of all weather people, no, persons? No. how about weather guys?
Anyway, Phil.... wait. Are we sure Phil is a guy. Did anyone check?
I mean, can a woman really do the man's job of seeing his shadow, prognosticating, playing the weather seer? Now, I'm not being sexist, more... scientific. Think about those Robin red breasts. The males have the color, right. So, can a gal gopher (note the Onamonopeia) really detect the weather future? Or... maybe, it's never been Phillip, it's always been Philomena.
Anyway, this year Phil, whatever the gender, was interpreted by rural Pennsylvania guys wearing tophats, very early on saturday morning, to have predicted six more weeks of winter.
Now, the political correctness question. Was Phil on drugs. This wild animal appeared much too calm to be sitting calmly on the man's arm, which is what this image portrays. Do we have a scandal here? Was Phil stoned? Should PETA be getting involved?
I don't know. You don't mess with mother nature stuff like this. It could kick us into a time warp. We DON'T want to forget Bill Murray's experience.
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
