Fog foils itchy trigger fingers

This isn’t a good time of the year to be a deer. For two weeks folks with rifles are stalking the woods of Pennsylvania trying to blow their brains out. And just when the deer are trying to get a jump on their Christmas shopping.Anyway, Mother Nature had the deer’s backs Monday in Berks County on the first day of rifle deer season. A thick fog apparently saved a number of them from being harvested.After all, you can’t shoot what you can’t see.Of course, unless a dense fog shrouds Berks until Dec. 8, a number of deer will wind up so much venison. Bad for them, of course. But at least there will be less of them to dart into our grilles at 55 mph.Actually, we can learn something from yesterday’s fog. Instead of hiring more cops and purchasing more surveillance cameras, the City of Reading should buy a gigantic fog machine and blanket our town in enough soup to make everybody crave crackers. And then nobody will be able to kill anybody.After all, you can’t shoot what you can’t see.
