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. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Runs for office sometimes, so far to offer a challenge to someone nasty who would otherwise have run unopposed. Someday he might pick a fight intending to win it rather than just to dent someone. You'll know it when you see it. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. A family member works part-time as a campaign treasurer. He doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he hated. He does advise some local campaigns informally and generally without compensation. If that changes, he will declare the interest. He also runs a less frequently published blog called "The Brean," for his chosen hometown, where he is now fighting with its wealthiest and most avaricious citizen-donors. This just seems to be his way.
