Whose Eclipse?

The solar eclipse craze is difficult to explain but I read that it is the first solar eclipse since 1776 to be seen ONLY on American soil. Perhaps the 1776 symbolized the eclipse of the British lion (monarchy) while this one symbolizes, in my view, at least, the eclipse of the freedoms and values upon which our country was founded. "Just sayin ' " I wouldn't mind if it foretold the "eclipse" of America's president by resignation, impeachment or rejection by the American people as a whole. Otherwise I remain relatively uninterested in the whole thing. Somewhere on earth a solar eclipse is said to occur every 18 months or so.

Be sure to put on your "blinders" if you're going to watch it!
