The bugs are coming, the bugs are coming!

We've seen no mention of this anywhere in the state's media, but it should be noted that this moth will mark the emergence of the brood of 17-year cicadas last seen around these parts in 1991.

Seventeen years ago, they began emerging about this time in May and were pretty much gone by the first of June. While they were here, the hills and valleys resonated with their song that quickly became omnipresent and annoying -- much like Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama and their surrogates will be during the next two weeks.

Let us know when the cicadas start emerging in your area.
