It’s easy enough to mock a forecaster from back in 1555 and to bitterly shout, “Wrong!” at any missteps, as if resentful that the world has consistently dealt a losing hand. Why not root for Nostradamus and celebrate the wonder of his being able to prophesy your dietary subtleties over 400 years before you were even born? Nostradamus doesn’t have to lose in order for you to win. Indeed, when Nostradamus wins, so do you. It’s been said that “the word win acknowledges the ‘i’ in ‘we,’” and while the precise meaning of that eludes us, the broader sentiment is surely true. Put simply, Nostradamus ends in “us.”
