Don't blame the groundhog...blame humans

Don’t blame Punxsutawney Phil.  Bill Deeley, the President of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle, says Phil rightly predicted six more weeks of winter last month.

The prosecutor who filed a criminal indictment against Phil for fraud says he’s reconsidering the charges now that Deely is taking the rap.
