In Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania earlier today, the world's most famous groundhog, "Punxsutawney Phil," emerged from his lair to find himself startled by his own shadow, indicating that winter will last another six weeks--and reminding yours truly of one of the funniest, and most profound, movies ever made.
Above, the official proclamation of the Groundhog Club of Punxsutawney. And below, thirty-seven seconds of "Groundhog Day," the movie in which Bill Murray finds himself condemned to repeating the same day over and over again until he finally gets it right. (And, yes, if you're wondering, I'm feeling an almost physical aversion to politics today. I keep trying to write about the GOP primary--and keep finding myself retreating to business and pop culture. For now at least, I've just plain had enough.)
Anyway, happy Groundhog Day--and does anybody else like the movie as much as I do?
