What scares me most is that Mr. Mogulescu isn’t being tongue in cheek or exaggerating or taking a page from the Stephen Colbert playbook. His list is exactly to the letter, what the presidential candidate nominees are campaigning on everyday they are courting the primary voters.

The emergence of all those early bulbs such as crocus and snow drops; they are the harbingers of spring to come. Lightens the spirit and the mind.
