Eddington's motives in conducting the observations were impugned, and even now the issue is not resolved. If Eddington's experiment was capable of distinguishing between GR predicted light bending and Newtonian bending, it was not excessively capable of so doing.
Yes, but that's another (much more difficult) question. Still, looking for Einsteinian bending and looking for Newtonian bending are in principle the same action.

Re: Cartoons
By now it ought to be clear that Dr. Adequate is fishing for exactly that kind of compliment.
Oh, I'm not nearly smart enough to do that.

You are forgetting that I have read your book. (Oops!!)

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)
I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn't learn something from him. Galileo Galilei
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass
