Woodstock for Nerds


That’s a great description of the social phenomenon that the eclipse has quickly turned into today, as I’m watching ABCs live coverage of “The Great American Eclipse”.  An all-time record for the number of “Oh—My—-God”s and “Awesome”s will be uttered today.  And today, even Donald Trump would be forgiven for saying that this is “the best”, “the greatest”, “the most spectacular” event …  believe it.  Of course the media is doing a fine job feeding into the celebratory mania.

Unfortunately Bill Nye is broadcasting right now from Beatrice, Nebraska, where the sun wasn’t bathing him – instead being obscured by clouds that were raining on the parade there.

But the sun was out in St. Joe’s Missouri, where a would-be-astonomer bride timed her nuptials for this special cosmic event.
