Every 13 to 17 years, the Magicicada come. That's the name of a particular genus of periodical cicada, but you probably know them as "what the hell is that racket." They make a lot of noise, is what I'm saying. The last time the cicadas came I remember complaining about it a lot. This year, I am more mature. And that's why I'm excited that, thanks to radio station WNYC and a simple kit that you can buy for $80, this year I will be putting aside my annoyance to instead eagerly track the arrival of the cicada brood.
