There’s just so much to ponder in this story about an astrologer who mistakenly predicted his own death.
First, the sad, sad fact that people still believe in this abominable junk. Sigh.
Then, that the police stationed constables at the man’s home to make sure he didn’t commit suicide in order to make his prediction stick.
And finally, the dry notice to close the story that “in the past, crowds have beaten up astrologers when their predicted demise failed to occur.”
