A close acquaintance of mine has decided to write a almanac under the pseudonym Josephus. He has been kind enough to allow me to copy sections of his work and post them on here. For those of you who have no idea what an almanac is I will explain. An almanac is a pamphlet on different things relating to that year, such as weather or astronomical events. The Native's Almanac is a collection of papers with titles such as State of the Union A.D. 2010 and Heroes of the Republic. These papers will be dealing with certain events and facts in America both past and present. Josephus will try to have his writings available by 2010 but until then enjoy the posts that will shortly follow this one.
