I am up early. Pitch black outside. This morning, golf!
There is a message in the Wisconsin recall election results. Beware!
As far as I am concerned, the good guys lost.
The results clearly indicate the way America wants to go. Conservatism. Radical conservatism. Not the good old fashion kind.
The pendulum will swing back some day. It is too far to the right not to. In the mean time, middle class America will further erode. Many of those who supported the Wisconsin recall results will realize the error of their ways. They are middle class also and will feel the deprivation.
The result is a victory for corporate America over the working class.
When people in general realize what is happening, they will be in the streets. It is inevitable.
Mary Jo died. I wrote about her yesterday. Everyone wrote about her. One terrific obituary in the Key West Citizen. It suggested she danced through the pearly gates.
Mary Jo, you touched many. Keep dancing!
I spent two hours yesterday in the dentist chair. No pain. Worked on fitting the implants.
I am totally impressed with the procedure at this point. Just wish it were over!
Got a haircut yesterday. Lovely Lori.
Lori looked terrific. Better than usual. She was out on her boat Sunday. The blond hair and deep tan are a perfect combination. She leaves this weekend for a two week trip up north to visit family. One of her stops will take her as far north as Maine.
Barbara is visiting. We hit the Chart Room first last night.
Keith Little was at the bar talking to Mary who was bartending. Her one night a week.
Keith is brother to Ed Little who died a couple of days ago. I never knew Ed Little, nor was I even aware of him. Strange! Because the Chart Room was his favorite haunt also.
Turns out Ed came in around 10 every evening. I would be long gone. My Chart Room time is 6-8.
I learned much about Ed last night. He was a diver, was with Mel Fisher when the gold was first discovered, etc. And…..a nice guy to boot! I telephoned son in law Corey. Do you know Ed Little? Yes. Well. We dive together. We also served on the board of the Key West Historical Newspaper as officers at the same time. A good guy!
I feel bad we never met. His friends are having a Key West send off for him this weekend at the Chart Room. I hope to be there.
Barbara and I had dinner at the Hot Tin Roof. John was all excited. His Wisconsin team is ranked #10 preseason in football. I told him to beware. I recall almost 25 years ago when Syracuse was ranked #1 preseason in basketball. The opening game of the season was at Springfield, home of the National Basketball Hall of Fame. Syracuse was playing North Carolina. I chartered a plane to fly to the game. Syracuse lost!
So much for preseason rankings! Based on my Syracuse experience, I consider them a jinx!
Golf this morning. I have to hustle. The guys I play with tee off earlier and earlier.
Enjoy your day!
