6.8.13 … the grossest and they have no shame …

mating cicadas, 17 year itch,  NYTimes.com:

There are a few acts of nature, such as the passage of Halley’s comet or the transit of Venus, that are so rare and so dramatic as to seem like metaphors for the virtues of patience itself. But of all of these, the arrival of the 17-year cicadas, the noisy insects that nestled under the earth for that length of time and recently awakened by the millions to spawn, may be the grossest.

“They are mating on the deck; they are mating on the banister; they are mating on the plants,” Ms. Garber Schoen, 68, said. “They don’t care, they are just mating all over the place. They have no shame whatsoever.”
