On one of the Nat’l Public Radio news shows before the Cubs and Red Sox lost their chances at pennants, one piece tackled the possible enormity of a Cubs-Red Sox WS.
One of the people interviewed was Bill “Spaceman” Lee, a former ballplayer. He went into a strange thing about the planet Uranus being in an odd position. He claimed that due to its position, thousands of weddings in India were being postponed, in fear of some calamity.
It sounded like a lot of nonsense. On the other hand, people in many parts of the world set their schedules on the basis of astrology (including the Reagan white house, some said.) What do you say, Indians? Were any weddings postponed recently?
