Screenshot of graphic from TheVerge.com, your best source for OC’s Eclipse-Marauding Coyote News, showing duration and time and extent of maximum eclipse on Monday 8/21.  https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/20/16175776/total-solar-eclipse-2017-what-time-is-it.  Remember: don’t look at the sun during the eclipse, as it would keep you from watching for marauding coyotes!

You surely already know about Monday morning’s eclipse, but did you know about the coyote warning?    No, you probably did not!  And is this a cheap clickbait tactic to get you to read the coyote warning by tying it to the eclipse?  Yes, it probably is!  Let’s go to a recent press release from the Fullerton Police Department:

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.)

    If you otherwise missed the news, both Jerry Lewis and Dick Gregory passed away this weekend. With all the multiple impending self-inflicted sh*tstorms here on earth, perhaps even the Almighty needed some diversionary humor – or is it “comedians week” ?

      And how do you think one can perform comedy before an omniscient audience that knows what’s coming?

      • Ron & Anna Winship

        *Dick Gregory….got it…..NO Diet Coke…..No Soy Lecithin and no Hostess Ding Dongs….

        Jerry Lewis….of course was the greatest Grandstander of All Time. He never appeared with Mohammed Ali or Donald Trump however.

    Were the Nazis “socialist”? Well, it’s complicated…

    Wait a minute, no it isn’t: NO, they weren’t!

    “So, why did the SUN decide not to go to college? He already had a million degrees!”

    The total eclipse of the sun brought back memories of Carly Simon and “You’re so vain!” It made you realize when newly elected President Bill Clinton when he went to the NCAA Basketball Championships he really wasn’t “Grand Standing” as much as the Thumpster and his wife did, as they just tried to take away the stellar moment from the people of Planet Earth. “Keep looking at the sun without the solar shield glasses…eh?” Teach our children well……is probably the message they wanted to convey!
