I am up early.

Weather magnificent.

Gray outside.

A big white moon in the west.

The sun about to rise in the east.

Warm.

Still. Nothing moving.

I visited with Marty in the morning yesterday. He lives on Duval over the Key West Women’s Club. Has resided in an upstairs apartment for years. The Red Barn Theater sits in his back yard.

We met at the Red Barn and chatted for a while.

Then I was off to Lucky Day for lunch. I was in the mood for cuban toast and coffee. Marty craved a Harpoon Harry’s lunch. So we went our separate ways.

After lunch, I went over to see Tammy for a manicure. It was time.

Then home to put the fine touches to today’s radio show. The big items will be the Gulf oil spill and the new Arizona immigration law. I am going to spend some time exploring Arizona’s new law. From Arizona’s perspective. We never hear it. I guarantee you will find it interesting. You may not agree with them, but should be aware of their motivations.

Weird dumb laws today will center on Arizona. Where else! However this segment of the show will have nothing to do with the new immigration law.

And I will discuss the Monroe County School Board and the new concession building that no one knew anything about. Plus the enviromental study the City obtained on the Glen Archer school building which left out any inspection for radon, mold and asbestos.

So my friends, listen in at 10 this morning! KONK 1500 AM. Better yet, see and hear on the internet at http://www.konkam.com/.

I must ask you to turn to your radios at 3 this afternoon, also. My daughter Lisa is a guest on Stephanie Kaple’s Fashion radio show. Lisa is joining Stephanie for a segment to talk about her Key West internet department store Via Key West. Lisa is charming and bright and good and everfything else! I love her!

Donna telephoned me last night from Miami Children’s Hospital. You will recall her daughter Stacey gave birth to baby George on May 13. George weighed 10 pounds 6 ounces. He had a bit of trouble coming out. So he was helicoptered to Miami Children’s.

The news was good last night. Baby George is coming home Sunday. Test results basically all good. Thank God!

If you are a kid and something may be wrong, the best place to be is Miami Children’s. My grandson Robert was born with cancer of the liver and had two major surgeries there in the first 8 days of his life. The staff are specialists in all kinds of young people’s problems.

I received an e mail picture this morning from Donna of baby George. He’s a horse! Looks 6 months old! No wonder the trip out was a bit bumpy! Whatever…..he is healthy and beautiful! Congratulations Stacey and Rob. And grandmother Donna, too.

It is no longer gray outside. The sun has broken over the horizon. Everything is bright and colorful. The colors are true. The green of the mangroves green. The blue of the water blue. And best of all, the two homes across the water from me softly vibrant. One is a pastel yellow and the other a light green. The sun is hitting directly on both of them as I watch.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Hey Lou- Great show today! Always nice to have on as I'm working.

    Also, thanks for reading my blog comment on the air! That's always exciting- haha.

    Part of what conflicts me about the AZ immigration law is that I do see it from both sides. I recently received my Masters in Criminal Justice and am trying to begin a career in law enforcement (not an easy thing to do in this economy). So I certainly understand the law from the standpoint of drugs, gangs, violence, etc. And I certainly understand the citizens of AZ wanting to live in a safe environment. And like I said earlier, I literally can't even begin to fathom what that's like, because it's not something I see on a day-to-day basis.

    But then the otherside of me, that's not entrenched in a law enforcement mentality fears what it could lead to. Which you touched on when you mentioned the proposed law to no longer educate the children of those in the country illegaly. The snowball effect has begun.

    Yet ultimately I do admire the AZ people for finally telling Washington that if they aren't going to address the issue, then they will.

    I guess in the end it's hotly contested debate and the answer lies somewhere in the middle, just a question of getting both sides to meet half way, which is always the hardest part- haha.

    Enjoy the holiday weekend,
    Matt
