Don't let the stars get in your eyes

Although the Ministry of Education appears to have gone out of its way to point out that the institute is not a part of the school or university system, an institute for astrology has opened in Belgrade. It offers certificates in knowledge of astrology which, it seems, would be accepted by the international astrological organisations (I did not know there were such things!). The name of the institute is the Johan Kepler Institute for Astrological Research and Education, probably after the founder of the much-missed bookstore which until very recently brightened the heavens in and around Menlo Park, California.

I reckon theres more truth in the reports of superman seen in Serbia than in these so called astologists with their mystical explanations.
