Terror can strike anywhere. Everywhere. Even Key West.
A criminal trial began yesterday in Federal District Court in Key West. The defendant, Harlem Suarez. His goal was to leave a backpack bomb on a Key West beach. In due course, the bomb would blow. People injured and killed.
Suarez a terrorist. Lived on Stock island.
The FBI were on to Suarez. Two undercover agents sold him an inert backpack bomb. Then arrested him.
Suarez had a Facebook site. He spoke of the glories of ISIS on the site. Also, ran pics. One of a terrorist holding the head of a decapitated woman.
Suarez referred to himself as the Black Angel of Death.
Lisa, my grandchildren, my friends, Key Westers, tourists, use the beaches.
Suarez should die.

Only one place to be a 6 this evening. Aqua. For Aqua Idol. A several week singing contest. Great voices. Equally great planning by Lynda Frechette who spearheads the event.
Wind still blowing big time day time yesterday. I took a ride over to the White Street Pier. In the past, extremely windy days resulted in waves crashing over the pier. A sight to see.
I was not disappointed. Nature pissed off. Waves rising high before slamming down on the pier.
I did not walk on the pier. Some did. I feared I would fall/get knocked over. I don’t need nature’s assistance to fall. I do well enough on my own.
The winds were 50 mph.
A portion of the Westin’s dock gave way because of the winds and waves. A mistake. Not the Westin anymore. Now the Margaritaville.
My evening began at Aqua last night. Dueling Bartenders time.Tom Luna one of the dueling bartenders. Last night his birthday. Celebrated with cake for all.
Barbara was with me. As we arrived, Liz and friends were leaving for dinner.
Walked over to Antonia’s for dinner afterwards. No room at the bar. Decided to head home, stopping at Outback first.
Syracuse/Wake Forest tonight. Syracuse a 2.5 point favorite. I have no idea who will win. My team not doing well this season.
Enjoy your day!
