Here’s an eclipse story for the books. On August 11, 1999, a total eclipse touched the tip of the United Kingdom at Cornwall. Oregonian author and counter-cultural icon, Ken Kesey, and his band of Merry Pranksters planned a festival to coincide with the solar event. They loaded their techno-color bus on a ship and forty Pranksters traveled “across the pond” to see what they could see.
Businesses across Oregon are reaping the benefits of the throngs of tourists descending on the state for the solar eclipse. But one tiny radio station in the path of totality will benefit from the eclipse in an unexpected way.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt (A Parable), explores nuanced aspects of doubt, faith and the power of stories, whether truthful or not.
