We start the month with a rodent trying to predict the weather. Of course, I am referring to Punxsutawney Phil, who gets his 15 minutes of fame every February 2 when this eighth or tenth generation woodchuck is pulled out of his burrow. Yes, groundhogs are also known as woodchucks, and young groundhogs may be called chucklings.
But this year, February 2 marked a more significant event: The date the 2015 Campaign for Justice hit its $280,000 goal. These few days into February, the grand total pledged is $283,555. With another 6 weeks until the campaign ends, we can hope to see that total dollar pledge grow even more.
