Particularly if it factors into the issue being discussed. If it's relevant, it's relevant.

The two reach just over 2 degrees apart in our sky on Nov. 29, and are slightly closer on Nov. 30. Until Dec. 1 (when the two planets lie nearly parallel), look for bright, whitish Jupiter in the southwestern sky above brighter Venus.

    BLOOMFIELD — With nothing but time on their hands, three men and three women lodged at the Greene County Jail apparently figured out how to travel from one jail cell to another through the ceiling and engaged in late-night card games, drinking and sex while the rest of the prisoners slept.
