Dopey Prince Eric the Chinless Wonder of Hoosierville once again steps into the breach. I don’t remember any such executive order for any past solar eclipse. After all, such cosmic events are common place here on earth and have been for thousands, if not millions of years. Why not order schools to close? Why not ban traffic on that day? Close businesses. Issues an order for everyone to stay inside and close all their window coverings! Nanny Holcomb is ridiculous. The end of his term cannot come soon enough. Besides, he can scribble all the executive orders he wants to but it will not prevent a single mishap due to the eclipse. Who is he helping? No one except his own ego.
