An interesting and lively TV/internet show tomorrow morning. How can in not be if the topics include the likes of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Paul McCartney!
The Key West Lou Legal Hour will start with my thoughts as to why many Americans dislike/hate President Obama. In addition to other topics previously mentioned this week, I will touch on Maryland being in the process of abolishing the death penalty, how a 1/4 ounce bat has stopped a major highway construction project, the IRS, first US Marine troops in Vietnam, and Italy’s Berlusconi being convicted yesterday of illegal publication of a wiretap.
Join me for a fast moving and informative hour.
The show is available via television on Comcast Channel 87 and U-Verse Channel 19 from Key West through all of Miami-Dade County. It is available worldwide via the internet. www.tvchannel19.com.
Ten in the morning my time.
I spent the first part of my yesterday working on tomorrow’s show. I was tired afterwards. I lay down on the bed for a few minutes. Woke three hours later. Guess I was tired!
The Chart Room early last night. Around 5. Me, Peter, and Emily. I had time for one drink only. Syracuse basketball awaited.
I mentioned to Peter I saw a gigantic black helicopter with all kinds of guns set down at the Key West Airport the day before. Peter said he had seen several from his perch at Fort Zachery Taylor beach where he spends his days.
While the conversation was going on, I was leafing through the Key West Citizen. Low and behold, there was a picture of one of the helicopters and an accompanying short story. Marine helicopters. Six of them. In Key West for training exercises.
Peter mentioned that at the same time he saw the helicopters, there were what he thought were Navy Seals at the Fort Zach beach. Running up and down the beach doing early morning exercises. He also viewed many rubber rafts just off shore occupied by what he thought were Navy Seals.
I hurried over to the Big Ten Sports Pub. Syracuse and De Paul playing. The game was at 6. I have never watched a Syracuse game at that time. When the mighty fall, all sorts of embarassments are heaped upon them!
Syracuse easily won. About time. Three straight losses leading up to last night’s game. There is only one game left in the regular Big East season for Syracuse. Georgetown on saturday. A must win for Syracuse. To avenge the drubbing two weeks ago and place Syracuse in position for a better seeding in the big tournament to come. March Madness in two weeks!
It is spring break time. About a dozen Georgetown students came in to watch Georgetown play. Georgetown was playing at 7. Most were young ladies. They must have arrived yesterday. All were pale.
They were anxious for Syracuse to lose to De Paul and then to Georgetown again on saturday. They consider Syracuse Georgetown’s #1 rival. Correct they were. Syracuse considers Georgetown in a similar vein.
I stopped at Don’s Place on the way home.
For those of you who are Larry Smith fans, his Dad died yesterday. Larry and Christine are off to Pennsylvania this morning to be with family.
I am beginning to get tired of the cold weather. Another cold front came in around 2 in the afternoon. The temperature dropped in minutes from 75 to 65 degrees. Got down to 61 during the evening. I turned on the heat. Today will be in the mid 60s.
This type cold weather should have been experienced by Key West in December and January. It did not. March is supposed to be sunshine all the time.
Bocce tonight. The Weather Channel says it will be 60 degrees while we are playing. The bocce courts are situated 300 feet off the Atlantic. The cold ocean breeze will add a chill factor.
I know. I should not complain. No one is playing bocce up north.
Enjoy your day!
