I have a data file with 56 entries that looks like this:

City State	JanTemp	Lat	Long
Mobile, AL	44	31.2	88.5
Montgomery, AL	38	32.9	86.8
Phoenix, AZ	35	33.6	112.5
Little Rock, AR	31	35.4	92.8
Los Angeles, CA	47	34.3	118.7
San Francisco, CA	42	38.4	123.0

I would like to "read" this data into a dataframe. Is it possible to do without editing the datafile?
