OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS: WHAT IS WRONG WITH US?

                                                        PROFIT AND GREED

 

The solar eclipse will occur on August 21st and be visible across a great part of the nation.

This is a great opportunity to observe a magnificent spectacle. I am sure many children will take this opportunity to observe the event and maybe choose to study astronomy.

Taking this into consideration, I recently heard a report which sickens me. To observe this fantastic event, you must take caution. One of the devices you can purchase to protect your eyes, special glasses, for if you gaze at the eclipse with your eyes unprotected you stand the possibility of going blind.

I was a scientist and still enjoy reading about the unknown revealed by science. What sickens me is that I just learned that counterfeit glasses are being sold. Glasses which may render the unsuspecting buyer blind.

What is the profit gained by selling a pair of cardboard counterfeit glasses, when the cost to the unsuspected buyer may be blindness.

This is what we have become. A nation of greed, wanting to make money no matter what the cost to the individual.
