Weekend Open Thread: Two Environmentalist Videos and One Drip


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Today we have an environmentalist theme with a little science and religion and art tossed in.  I saw one video in an online magazine today — an animated version of a Louis CK riff on environmentalism and religion. Then I saw one through facebook, also with an environmentalist theme. I think that viewed together, the whole is even a little more than the sum of both quite enjoyable parts.

This is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about this or anything else you’d like, within broad bounds of decency and decorum.

And this is a very special brea drip — read about it here but don’t watch it on Slate unless you want to suffer through Walmart’s obnoxious recent ad campaign — after which you’ll get the weekly OC Register Dearthwatch.

And here’s the Dearthwatch!  Things mostly seem to be leveling off.  It was tempting to leave ours up so as in be able to include what is, for us, quite a busy day.


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
