ST. LOUIS (AP) – Fortunetellers may already know what the future holds for them in St. Louis, but the rest of us will need to wait for the city’s Board of Aldermen to decide.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that if Alderman Shane Cohn gets his way, fortunetelling could become legal in the city. Cohn has introduced a bill repealing a city law that forbids the practice of fortunetelling. Under current law it is a misdemeanor.

Another effort to get rid of the law in 1994 failed. Several aldermen argued at the time that the elderly could be fleeced and defrauded by phony seers.
