With all the bad front-page news involving shootings last week, I have to admit the Trib‘s decision to front online the coming of the 17-year-cicadas is a welcome relief, as is their kindly attitude towards the bugs. Their advice to try to attract cicadas just for kicks is especially heartwarming.

On the other hand, the only reason to eat cicadas is for the adventure. You’ll only enjoy them if you think the best thing about shrimp is the shell.
