If you’ve ever thought we are living in an age of unmatched intellectualism & enlightenment, here’s a lil’ story to remind you just how far we still have to go.  Apparently medical professionals in AT LEAST Redding, CA and Bristol, VA reported treating several people for a unique eclipse-related injury a week ago.  Sore eyes.  As a result of…….wait for it……..putting SUNSCREEN ON THEIR EYEBALLS to watch the eclipse in lieu of NASA-approved eye wear.  You can’t fix stupid, folks, but apparently you can get a portion of the population to intentionally blind themselves for recreational purposes.
