The good citizens of St Johnsbury, New England, can now peer into the future and charge for it without fear.
Soothsaying might still be banned in some parts of America, but St. Johnsbury has repealed the ordinance against peering into the future that it had on the books since 1966. . .
Fear of fraud has prompted many communities to ban fortunetelling but critics say it’s not government’s place to decide whether such personal beliefs or practices are fraudulent.
No doubt those who practise soothsaying will have seen this coming.
