I fear Charlottesville saturday may have changed America forever.
The shadow people revealed themselves in major fashion. The rodents came out of the earth, the vermin out of the walls. White Supremacists, neo-Nazis, and Klu Klux Klaners.
Accepted without proper/sufficient denunciation by Trump.
The white supremacists website Daily Stormer cheered Trump in that regard: “When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him.”
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Alt Right leader, Donald Trump!
An excellent Sunday!
Meet The Press.
Then the PGA. Watched Justin Thomas win by 2 strokes.
Hot Dog Church. Laurie bartending. Like her a lot. Donna and Terri. Art and George. Met a lady. A sex change person. Male to female. Many others.
Donna and Terri joined me for dinner afterwards at Antonia’s. TK bartending. A fun time.
I am an early to sleep person. Not last night. Awake till 1 in the morning. Got hooked on a couple of movies. Will pay for it today.
Another Tropical Storm. Gert. Not a problem. Way out in the Atlantic. Already started its turn northwest.
One may not turn, will increase in power to a hurricane, and head for Key West. I am preparing you for such an event.
Failed to mention one part of my Robert and Ally saturday. We did Lobster Fest between lunch at Denny’s and the Key West Escape Room. Walked Duval.
First time Lobster Fest for Robert and Ally. They enjoyed. They knew some of those working the food tents. Montessori teachers.
I sometimes think Pritam Singh does not receive the credit he deserves. On this day in 1988, Singh broke ground for Truman Annex. Since that time, he has constructed other significant sites. Ocean Edge on Stock Island the most recent.
A major contributor to the Key West scene.
I mentioned my concern re the amphitheater the other day. Had the City hired some one to run the place yet? Or was the amphitheater to be another half assed planning job ultimately costing taxpayers extra money?
The latter appears to be the case.
The City Commission announced the amphitheater’s first event will be a 4 day country music concert in February. The show is paying Key West a $4,000 rental feel. Yes, $4,000! Won’t even cover the cost for staffing, clean-up, and extra police for crowd and traffic control.
There once was a City Commission who used their heads in running Key West. Actually, keeping Key West afloat.
During the tough days of the Great Depression (1929 through the 1930’s), Key West was broke. Everyone was. The City Commission authorized the City to print money. Called it Script. Actual amount unknown. Thought to be $50,000-100,000.
It worked. The Script was used to pay City employees. Who in turn used the Script to buy things. Many merchants accepted the Script. Key West was able to keep its nose above the water line.
How bad was bad? So bad that there was no demand to buy real estate. No one had money. There were also few foreclosures. No one had the money to buy the property afterwards from the bank.
Enjoy your day!
