Letter: Of woolly worms and other prevaricators

Jim writes:
Last week, my walking buddy and I encountered a pair of woolly worms on a walking path up here north of the Green River. Of the two, one was light brown, while the other was blacker than a reprobate's soul. After much discussion and rumination, we decided one of the two was a weather prognosticator and the other a politician. Alas, we had no way of knowing which was which. --Jim
