The Eighth Plague

Apparently God is once again displeased with Egypt, as a swarm of thirty million locusts has descended upon the Giza region.  (There's a fairly disturbing picture here.) Actually, if you read the article you will find that this is a seasonal problem in Egypt (albeit not usually in such large quantities), and no miraculous intervention will be required to disperse the insects-- hopefully the strong winds predicted in the next few days will do the trick.

One era's "miracle" is another era's scientifically explainable event.
