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

Somewhat verbose worker's rights and government accountability attorney, residing in northwest Brea. 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. Occasionally runs for office to challenge some nasty incumbent who would otherwise run unopposed. (Someday he might pick a fight with the intent to win rather than just dent someone. You'll know it when you see it.) He got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012 and in 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. A family member co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
