Progress/forward movement occurring on the lower end of Duval.
Free WiFi. Lower Duval and Mallory Square. Refer to Connect Key West. Purportedly available to locals only.
Irish Kevin’s has an upstairs. Recent grand opening held. If half as much fun as downstairs, it is a winner.
I am not sure an upstairs to a popular bar works. Sloppy Joe’s opened one several years ago. I have not been in years because when I went it was dead. I am not sure how it is today. It may not even be open.
Erika proving fickle. A tropical storm. Now predicted will turn into a hurricane. All indications are it will come over Key West. Several days from now. Locals will not be concerned yet.
My blog talk radio show last night. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. One problem after another.
I sat down in my recliner at 5 to watch the news for a half hour. Fell asleep. Woke at 7:30. Meant no dinner at Roostica.
Took me 10 minutes to connect with the studio. Technical difficulties at the studio end. Frustrating. I finally was live on air at 9:10 rather than 9.
There was a sign on the computer screen telling me the studio was experiencing technical difficulties. Went on after I was on the air.
It was my option to proceed or shut down. I opted to proceed because some times a problem is miniscule and the show can be heard.
Not last night. I was not aware during the show what a disaster it had become. Reception terrible. Lot of cracking. Almost impossible to hear. I received a number of comments afterwards to the effect.
The only saving value is that most of the material can be used next week.
I was especially disappointed that three topics could not be heard. The rise of Neo-Nazism in Germany, whole bodies being sold by Planned Parenthood, and Mama Bear and five Cubs enjoying a family pool in New Jersey.
My yesterday pleasant. Walked Duval, lunched at home, fine tuned last night’s show, and spent some time working on the love story. I am not sure it is love. However, it is interesting. I am questioning whether the final product will be worthy of publication.
The Donald Trump/Jorge Ramos situation last night proves a point. At least from my perspective.
I watch MSNBC. Following the confrontation, the MSNBC news talk shows were all down on Trump. This morning on Morning Joe, Joe, Mika and everyone else were on Trump’s side. Forgiving. Morning Joe is an MSNBC show.
Is this the media controlling the news? Influencing what we hear? I believe last night’s pundit comments were legitimate. This morning’s not. Between last night and this morning, I fear the powers to be sent out the word. Soft pedal the Trump thing, don’t beat Trump up, etc.
Another disappointment was that very few of the reporters took up Ramos’ cause in subsequent questions to Trump. Cowards? Fearful?
One of Trump’s security skillfully escorted Ramos out of the room. A big guy. Ramos small in comparison.
Megyn Kelly returned to work yesterday. Trump issued a statement referring to her as a “bimbo.”
Similar actions occurred in the past in other countries.
My concern factor is on the rise. Trump may be dangerous.
Enjoy your day!
