I kind of missed the lunar eclipse that occurred around 3 a.m. early Tuesday morning. I'd like to tell you that it was too cloudy, but it wasn't. My pal Johnnie Walker Black and I patiently waited for the celestial event to occur. Around 2:45, I went outside to take a gander at the event and it was then that I realized that the tall trees in the neighborhood would seriously compromise any decent look at the eclipse.
For a brief moment, I thought I had finally zeroed in on the eclipse but with the help of my pal Johnnie, I realized that I was gazing at the street lamp. As I began to see that chances were slim to view the event, I also realized that I was standing outside in a tee shirt, pajama pants, slippers and a glass of scotch at 3 o'clock in the cold morning air. These facts mentally absorbed, I retired to my living room to watch the event on the Public Broadcasting channel. My cat, Shithead just shook his head in amazement.....

Odds and Ends: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is out on bail and under house arrest at a 600-acre estate. That will teach him. Assange is on a curfew as well.
