Zodiac silliness

Haven’t blogged much for a while.  Busy.

Apparently some astrological silliness has been making the rounds of some news sites and twitterers lately.  In case you’re wondering, Bad Astronomy has everything you need to know:

I'll note this silliness has extended well beyond Twitter; the prestigious scientific journal OK!* says that “Taylor Swift's the New 13th Sign Ophiuchus!” and goes on to say that even if the astrological signs change, “horoscope readings reportedly shouldn't be affected.”
Phew! I'll agree with them on that. After all€¦
