The crazy-warm weather--it's in the 80s today--is killing the Cubs but bringing out the ladybugs, who have been wakened from their hibernation and are menacing downtown pedestrians. I tried looking out the living-room window this morning and found my vision obscured by about two dozen ladybugs clinging to the inside of the screen and crawling up and down the pane. One ladybug is cute; twenty is a conspiracy.
