There was a total solar eclipse that streaked across the U.S. yesterday. Perhaps you heard about it. Some called it breathtaking, others called it predictable. It helped stop at least one crime that we know of.
In Florida, of all places, police say they were following a 22-year-old man in a stolen car, when he stopped at a store. The suspect came back out with a welding mask so that he could watch the eclipse. It was then that he was arrested and charged.
Apparently welding masks aren’t safe for eclipse watching, but the guy should get leniency just for his outside-the-box thinking.
