Arizona Republic readers can rest easy: The paper's astrology column is back to publishing one-to-four-star advance reviews of the type of day they can expect.
After the paper canceled one syndicated horoscope and picked up another last month, readers noticed that the one-to-four-star advance reviews of their day had disappeared. Previously, readers could check at a glance whether they should prepare for disaster or fortune, and many of them were frustrated at the change.
We just noticed them... and confirmed we're having a four-star day.
Thompson has a sort of postscript to the story in his column today:
