To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Path of Totality



Pretty cool.  Portland's obscuration is set at 99.2 percent.  Shit like this must have scared the hell out of the ancients, leading to all sorts of myths and rituals.

Now people are camped out near Madras in central Oregon, where the obscuration will be 100 percent for over two minutes.
