The Good Book is Good Business
Today's forecast for St. Peters: Sleet, high 35 degrees. After the bitter cold we had yesterday and an expected high temp of 35 today, I'm humming "It's a Heat Wave." Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah--Heat Wave.

Simon's article chronicles even more facts and figures--fascinating reading about the timeless Good Book.
