I readily take the point, palma, that there is a fundamental difference
between selling quack pills masquerading as effective medicines and seeking
payment for some astrological prediction, and that the newspaper report does
not go into detail on the relevant law and its purpose, and it may well be
that the court's decision is not based on any strict analysis of what is
"science" but on whether astrology should be excluded from the harms that
the law is there seeking to prevent, and therefore the finding it is a
"science" for the purpose of the law under consideration may be deemed
correct as a matter of purposive construction and on grounds of public
policy. The point that Popper was not consulted because he is dead is also
well-made, though I maintain they could still have consulted his works which
are available in all good bookshops.

Signora granda, testa che massa
massa ne passa, che quasi schissa,
Dia dei sostegni de cese e palassi
Dia de le taje che su ne tien fissi
Dia de le onde che le ne fa grassi,
ne ingrassa de ogni grassia, Dia Venessia -

aàh Venessia aàh Venàssia aàh Venùsia

Andrea Zanzotto, Filò, (Sezione: Recitativo Veneziano)
