3. Nice finds as always, Judi

In Argentina, where astrology is quite popular, right-wing opponents are already licking their chops on account of eclipses being said to be detrimental to whomever's head of state.

They're desperate because polls already show that Fernández's Front For All is set to add several seats to their majority in the House (currently a narrow 119 to 115).

Polls show that despite economic problems stemming from the pandemic (plus Macri's legacy), voters generally prefer Fernández's all-hands-on-deck diligence to Macri's "let those who must die, die" callousness.

(this was said to be an actual quote of Macri's when the pandemic started - though no recording has emerged of this sadly)

The fault, as Shakespeare would remind them, isn't in the stars - or in an eclipse - but in themselves.

Eclipse viewers in Buenos Aires yesterday: blinded by the right?
