LET THE SUNSHINE IN

The musical Hair premiered on Broadway this day in 1968.

It was a first!

It was hippie time in America. The country was in social and cultural upheaval. Hair was a tribal love-rock musical. New!

The show gave New York theater goers a full frontal glimpse of the burgeoning 60s-counterculture aesthetic.

Hair first opened off Broadway. In Joseph Papp’s Public Theater in the East Village. Ran there for 6 weeks before moving onto Broadway.

It was at Papp’s Theater in the Village that I saw the show. A huge old movie theater. Packed. Standing room only.

Hair was different. It was the first of what was to come. However none knew it at the moment.

I became aware when the entire cast appeared on stage at the end of the first act nude. Totally. Male and female. Front and back.

Unheard of in those days.

The crowd went wild!

It was a youth performance with a youth hope. That the world was going to chose tomorrow.

I missed the hippie experience by about 10 years. When I saw Hair, I was 33. Had a wife, 4 children and a mortgage. I was into wearing suits, shirts and ties.

Today appears to be great musicals of yesteryear time for me.

“I’m on the road again…..” One of my all time favorites. Willie Nelson.

He is 87 today and still going strong!

Forrest Gump was prone to come up with brilliant statements. One of my favorites: “Stupid is as stupid does.”

The recipient of the stupid is as stupid does award today is none other than Vice President Michael Pence.

A horse’s ass in many ways.

Pence was at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota this past week. He refused to wear a mask while visiting the doctors and patients. Even though Mayo personnel explained to him it was “policy.”

Woodrow Wilson must have had a suspicion that some day a Donald Trump would be President. A Wilson observation befitting Trump: “All the extraordinary men I have ever known were clearly extraordinary in their own estimation.”

My blog talk radio show Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou last night. The main topic was Fauci, Giuliani, Wuhan Laboratory, and the $3.7 million grant.

I was loaded for bear.

Absorbed 20 minutes of the 30 minute show. Worthy of such a long exploration of the situation. I have not shared it here as yet. Saving the material for another day as I suspect the “show” is not yet over.

The Florida Keys are doing well as far as Covid-19 is involved. The Keys are part of Monroe County.

The County so far reports 79 confirmed cases, 3 of those resulting in death. Key West claims 38 of the cases, none of the deaths.

Trump is proud of his record. Especially as to “promises made, promises kept.”

The problem which Trump does not recognize is that few of his promises become reality.

Stimulus monies. Small Business loans a major screw up. Everyone is aware.

I was concerned about the $1200 stimulus payment to Social Security recipients. I am one of those, together with millions of others. Thought sure there was going to be a screw up. Business as usual.

Not this time. Trump delivered as represented. Monday  the Washington word was those entitled to payment who were on direct deposit would receive their deposit by the end of the month.

The end of the month tomorrow.

I checked my bank account on the internet this morning. The $1200 was there.

On this day in 1946, movie producer David Selznick and movie star Jennifer Jones checked into La Concha Hotel.

Jones one of my all time favorites. Especially her performances in The Song of Bernadette and Love Is A Many Splendored Thing.

May Johnson still sick. Her second week in bed. “Chills” a major complaint. In her diary for this day in 1896, she wrote: “In bed all day, at 10 o’clock had another dreadful chill.”

Enjoy your day!

  1. “It was my former boss, Joe Biden, who raped me”

    “I’m calling for the release of documents being held by the University of Delaware that contain Biden’s staff personnel records because I believe it will have my complaint form, as well as my separation letter and other documents… maybe if other staffers that have tried to file complaints would come to light – why are they under seal?”

    Both quoted from Biden’s Rape victim, Tara Reade.

    • Who is Tara Reade and what’s her beef? Are you sure it wasn’t someone calling for trump to release HIS personal documents, including tax returns – why are THEY still under seal? Isn’t that far more important anyhow? After all, he’s the president and she’s just an actress with a movie coming out.

      Trump has not yet made good on his promise to sue any of the 25 women accusing him of sexual as*ault — although at least two women have sued him – and the White House says that Trump’s election proves the American people don’t consider the allegations disqualifying.

        • Can you please give us the source of your claim of “rape” with regards to the Tara Reade alleged a-ault? This is important because misinformation or the use of hyperbole in such issues diminishes the impact and credibility of sexual a-sault, to the level of unbelievability. It is very important not to overstate or trivialize something like this.

          • Hi Karen. The source you’re looking for is the rape victim, Tara Reade. The first poster above had her actual quotes about being raped by Joe Biden. I think the rape victim is a good source, no?

            • I have not seen ANY quotes from the original, so called rape victim, Tara Reade claiming to have been raped, only where she called it sexually as-ualted, or words of that nature. She seems to be far more measured in her allegations, dosen’t she? That’s why I’m wondering if you are the one making that part up. Can you please find where she called it rape? We don’t want to exaggerate something of this importance just to create hysteria and run the risk of it not being believed, now do we?

              • You’re like the security guard at the gates of Auschwitz. You didn’t see a thing did you? Look it up rape apologizer. Take those quotes from that first post. Put it no google,.. Then go to confession. You need it.

                • No, No, just asking you to back up your screechy claims about here having claimed rape. No need to change the subject

                  • I know how hard google can be. But if you simply take the quotes and plug them into that insanely difficult to use website, Herr Eichmann, you’ll find what you’re trying to avoid.

                    • I have done that and it is NOT there, anywhere. If it was, I wouldn’t be asking for your help with this.

                      Please tell all of us where Tera Reade has said “Joe Biden raped me.”

  2. The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.

  3. Diversionary BS by the politically deceitful right wingers in this country to keep everybody’s attention from far more important matters, such as that “the Trump administration hijacked 5 million masks from veterans hospitals,” all the while helping the Russian requests for just those sort of supplies.

    • So, all you Vet’s out there – remember that little move when Trump and his political allies ask for YOUR vote, come the next elections

      • Can you please give us the source of your claim of “rape” with regards to the Tara Reade alleged a-sault? This is important because misinformation or the use of hyperbole in such issues diminishes the impact and credibility of sexual a-sault, to the level of unbelievability. It is very important not to overstate or trivialize something like this.

        • Rape: unlawful sexual activity.

          there, fixed it for you. Jamming your fingers in a woman’s vagina without her permission, kind of fits the bill, don’t ya think? If Tara Reade was your daughter, would you think this is OK?

          • No one, including me is saying it is OK, mostly people are asking if it is true and is there maybe more to this that we’re hearing about. I am specifically wondering why you are calling it “rape” instead of what she and other people are calling it sexual misconduct or as-ault, because using “rape” as YPU do when everybody else seems NOT to be doing is a lot like yelling “fire” in a crowded theater when unnecessary.

            After all Kristin Anderson, a photographer and former model said Trump reached under her skirt and touched her vagina through her underwear at a New York City nightclub in the early 1990s. Anderson, then in her early 20s, said she wasn’t talking with Trump at the time and didn’t realize he was sitting next to her when he groped her without her consent. Now, she didn’t call that rape and as such most people believe her.

            • The woman Joe Biden raped calls it rape. If joe Biden forcibly shoved his fist up you vagina, then said “you’re nothing to me”…, would you call that rape? Or just some misunderstanding?

  4. Between September of 2016 and May of 2017, Alexander Tara Reade used a Twitter account, under the name Tara McCabe (married name), to spread praise of Joe Biden via tweeting, retweeting and liking various Tweets. Specifically in 2017 for his action in helping stop sexual as*ault, not just once, but on multiple occasions.

    • The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.

      • I am saying their is considerable doubt, supported with a lot of factual materials to support that doubt. Several publications including The AP, The Nation and others have reported sever inconsistencies and conflicting reports given by Ms. Reade over the years. The Intercept reports that TIME’S UP said it could not fund a #METOO allegation against Joe Biden.

        What I am saying is your persistent “hair on fire” ranting on this is way over the top and seems a lot more like ‘fake outrage’ than anything real or honest and maybe actually dishonest and deceitful.

      • Let’s start here: Jill Harth, a businesswoman who worked with Trump in the 1990s, told the Guardian in July 2016 that Trump pushed her against a wall, put his hand up her skirt, and tried to kiss her at a dinner at his Mar-a-Lago resort in the early 1990s. “He was relentless, I didn’t know how to handle it. I would go away from him and say I have to go to the restroom. It was the escape route.” Harth sued Trump in 1997 both for sexual haraszment and for failing to uphold his end of a business deal with Harth and her then-partner.

        • And let’s end here “it was my boss, Joe Biden, who raped me”. He forced this poor woman against a wall. Shoved his fingers into her vagina.. then told her “you’re nothing to me”. Joe Biden raped a woman. And you are trying to apologize for his evil. You are part of the problem. You’re so apologetic it makes me think that maybe you treat women this way too?

          • Can you please produce where this quote was made by Tara Reade please, not something else, that exact quote? I am not apologizing for any evil, only asking YOU to back up your rather toxic accusations.

              • All these posts say “Sexual As-ault” NOT rape as you insisted. Just as I expected and predicted. You put words into Tara Reade’s mouth,overstated and lied about what actually happened, that is deceitful and dishonest, then you doubled down several different times and ways. How can you ever expect anyone to believe you about this or anything else again!

                • Hi Karen! You’re obviously a product of public school! An complete idiot. First, these are not “posts”. It’s an article by cnbc.

                  And if you didn’t have the attention span of a mayfly, you’d be able to read all the way to paragraph 21. Where she,Miss Reade, the rape victim, says… and I quote:

                  “I voted for Hilary Clinton in 2016. I voted for her in the primary. I’m a lifelong Democrat. But yet, what I see now is someone enabling a sexual predator (like you, Karen) and it was my former boss, Joe Biden, who raped me”.

                  I understand that morons like yourself have a difficult time with reading. It’s not your fault. That’s precisely why facts like these are called “burying the lead”. To prevent the mentally handicapped from getting that far.

                  • That is just an outright lie

                    I have read the article you refer to: www . cnbc . com/2020/04/14/joe-biden-accused-of-sex-aZZault-amid-challenge-to-donald-trump.html – several times, there is NO SUCH STATMENT, in paragraph 21 or anywhere else of the 26 paragraphs of that article.

                    In fact the only time the word “Rape” is used in that entire article is in paragraph 11 where it refers to Trump as Trump has been publicly accused of sexually groping and hara-sing multiple women, and one accuser, the writer E. Jean Carroll, claims in a civil defamation lawsuit that he raped her in a department store dressing room in the mid-1990s.

                    Rather than attack me with slurs and calling me things like: “A complete idiot,” “moron” “mentally handicapped”etc., etc. you should appologize for wasting everybody’s time and falsifying practically every post you make on Lou’s blog.

                    Honesty is just not your interest, deception and lies however, describe you better.

                    Sorry about your fake gotcha, everything about you Sandy is a ruse.

  5. It is all political. Think about it

    Florida’s golf courses are open with a Republican Governor
    N.J.’s golf courses are closed with a Democratic Governor
    Maine golf courses are open with a Democratic Governor

    Florida has a Trump owned course
    N.J. has a Trump owned course
    Maine has NO Trump owned courses

    What is in common? Trump owned courses!

  6. We should all believe the Intel. community when they speak on Trump. Here is more they speak on.

    U.S. intelligence has estimated that between March 23 and April 4, at least 45,500 corpses were incinerated in China.

    • Sure sounds possible. If true, or anything even close, it proves that this CaronaVirus is NO HOAX and needs to be taken seriously. Let’s hope we’re not on that same path.

      It also makes Sean Hannity look kind of foolish saying it’s no big thing, doesn’t it? He owns that now, just like Trump and all the other deniers.

  7. cnbc.com/amp/2020/04/29/democratic-women-rally-behind-joe-biden-as-he-faces-sexual-aZZault-allegation.html

    Here you go rape deniers! Tara Reade telling cnbc how joe Biden raped her. You’ll have to change the “z”’s in the url to “s”’s as creepy Lou doesn’t allow those three letters, a, s and s to be used simultaneously.

    Enjoy!

    • All these posts say “Sexual Azzault” NOT rape as you insisted. Just as I expected and predicted. You put words into Tara Reade’s mouth,overstated and lied about what actually happened, that is deceitful and dishonest, then you doubled down several different times and ways. How can you ever expect anyone to believe you about this or anything else again!

    • Liar, Liar, pants on fire – she said nothing about rape. an important distinction if you ever want to be believed again by anyone.

      Right from the beginning this was the point of this entire stupid discussion and you insisted on trying to lie your way every time. Sexual azzault is deplorable, but you had to amplify that into some hair on fire issue that hurts all of us women and makes you look like a jerk. Stop trying to make yourself look important on things that don’t concern you.

      • Hi again Karen! You’re obviously a product of public school! A complete idiot. First, these are not “posts”. It’s an article by cnbc.

        And if you didn’t have the attention span of a mayfly, you’d be able to read all the way to paragraph 21. Where she,Miss Reade, the rape victim, says… and I quote:

        I understand that morons like yourself have a difficult time with reading. It’s not your fault. That’s precisely why facts like these are called “burying the lead”. To prevent the mentally handicapped from getting that far.

        Rape apologist. I hope you never get raped…but maybe if you did you’d understand.

          Sorry about your fake gotcha, everything about you Sandy is a ruse

  8. Trump doesn’t have to be dishonest, deceitful or manipulative, he has a whole army of simpleton trolls, like Patrick, Sandy Feet and others who will gladly do all that for him, and they’re just doing it for fun and some sort of pervert jollies.

    • I have friends! I get paid by Americans. You get paid by the People Republic of China who owns the Casa Maria. Glad they pay taxes here in KW

  9. It sure looks like Joe Biden raped Tara Reade. We are better than this. We are supposed to support her. I’m ashamed of being a progressive when I hear our side defending this.

    • Look at it this way Sandy, you can always pretend to be a Republican, that way you can pretend to be ashamed to be afraid of everything. Fake is MAGA

  10. I have friends! I get paid by Americans. You get paid by the People Republic of China who owns the Casa Maria. Glad they pay taxes here in KW

  11. I have friends! I get paid by Americans.. You get paid by the People Republic of China who owns the Casa Maria. Glad they pay taxes here in KW.

  12. This is all a bit overwhelming. Did Joe Biden really rape someone? Another he said, she said thing?. And I do tend to believe the accuser, but maybe we should wait until this all plays out? I don’t know.

  13. Just a theory here. Not trying to stir the pot. But is it possible that Louis is actually the infamous “Patrick”.? Just trying to get us all riled up? He was a lawyer after all. And he does love attention. Sorry to blow your cover KW Lou. If I did.

  14. Brett Kavanaugh was going for a lifetime position. Dr. Ford had more to lose and should have been believed because the Supreme Court justice position is forever.

  15. Some thing else.

    HRC should support Joe with all her heart. If Joe becomes President then HRC will be able to cover over a lot of sins. Her payment of C Steal for his term paper, the hatch job on a ware hero , Flynn and the list goes on. Watch her it all started their.
    To be at the top you have to be driven. To be a driven Male you have to have the driver,Testosterone. It drives the mind and it drives sleepy Joe— But he is old now.
    His son has the same gene now.

    So HRC needs Jo for a cover up and Jo needs HRC for the woman vote.
    Your friend the troll here

  16. Just an other lye from the troll about a well run City and State were Lou and I were born and worked and you ask why we live here as old folks

    Police found dozens of bodies being stored in unrefrigerated trucks outside a Brooklyn funeral home and lying on the facility’s floor Wednesday, law enforcement sources told The Post.

  17. I hear that the CIA and Hilary Clinton are operating a child sex ring out of a Pizza Parlor in New Jersey, funded by the Chinese, to distribute the CaronaVirus to Italy so that the Spain can take over the Fairfield Pork Product business in North Dakota and thus ruin Wisconsin’s ability to ignore sensible infectious disease precautions.

  18. Pence was at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota this past week. He refused to wear a mask while visiting the doctors and patients. Even though Mayo personnel explained to him it was “policy.”

    Appalling. We can no longer tolerate the lowering of standards from the Trump Admin. Totally irresponsible.

  19. “I’m on the road again…..” One of my all time favorites. Willie Nelson.

    He is 87 today and still going strong!

    …but we must remember cannabis kills, lol.

  20. Trump is proud of his record. Especially as to “promises made, promises kept.”

    I would like to apply a well know rule to trumps campaign slogan. Garbage in, garbage out.

  21. Since qualifying status for the stimulus in whole or part uses the lowest AGI for the last two tax years it would be a problem for many on SS. Some do not file taxes because they are under the threshold or SS is their sole income. Fortunately, they made a special rule to accommodate such recipients and funds were authorized to their direct deposit accounts. I understand AARP had to do some hard lobbying to get this through.

    • But no less so than Trump!

      Just ask E. Jean Carroll, who he raped in what everyone agrees is a much more traditional and despicable and telltale way (she still has the “blue dress”).

  22. There goes our supply of Fentanyl:
    From NBC NEWS–
    China’s military has said it “expelled” a U.S. navy vessel from the hotly contested waters of the South China Sea this week. It said the “USS Barry” had illegally entered China’s Xisha territorial waters on Tuesday.

    • Yep it’s the US Navy that’s smuggling it back to the USA, you infantile dunce!

      And all this time we though it was the Mexican Navy smuggling it back to Mexico, so they could tunnel it under Trumps Great Wall just so Trump could blame the Democrats for another False Hoax.
