Sally Yates is the Acting Attorney General Trump fired because she reported Michael Flynn’s lies, danger of being blackmailed, etc. to the White House. Yesterday was her day before a Senate Committee regarding her actions.
A star was born! A woman of unusual character revealed to the world!
Yates was unbelievable! Intelligent, capable, knowledgeable, prepared, honest, and straight forward. She did her job and was fired for it. The Washington mentality at work.
Yates was a life long public servant. She worked her way up the ladder in the Justice Department. She did not ask for this moment in the sun. It was forced upon her. She handled it well. Exemplary!
This is the type individual to be considered for a Supreme Court seat. A no bullshit up front person. Probably will never occur because neither Democrats nor Republicans could depend on her for a favorable vote.
Yates evidenced her ability best in handling questions by Senator Conyers and Senator Cruz. Both tried to sand bag her with stupid asinine questions. Obviously politically motivated. She handled everything they threw at her well. To the extent of even showing that they were not aware of subsequent changes in the law nor additional pertinent facts.
It was a pleasure watching her.
I had a 10 am morning meeting on Stock Island. Decided when it concluded to visit the new hotel at the end of Stock Island. Ocean Edge.
Its outstanding quality is the silence. Not even a bird’s tweet. Another world.
I enjoyed lunch at the outside dining room.

Last night was Dueling Bartenders at Aqua. Terri White guest performer.
The largest crowd I have ever seen at the Dueling Bartenders event. Huge! Had to be Terri’s appearance. She performed outstandingly. Huge clapping and cries of excellence following each song.
Every one there to hear Terri. Among others, Bob and Lynda Frechette, Jean Thornton, Bobby Nesbitt, Liz, Mary, and Joseph.
A perfect evening.
Bobby Nesbitt next week.
The Historical Section of yesterday’s Key West Citizen made mention of a yesteryear house of ill repute’s madam. Alice Reid. She was sentenced to three years in jail for violation of the Mann Act. She brought ladies across state lines for purposes of prostitution.
I did not mention the event.
Diana Millikan e-mailed me. She reminded me I wrote about Alice Reid in detail in February. I forgot.
Went back and reviewed my comments. Longer than yesterday’s mention in the Citizen.
Reid was a madam. A well known one. Spent man years running two houses. Each at different times.
These were Navy days. A large contingency stationed in the Key West area. Customers galore!
Reid called her establishment Mom’s Tea Room.
The Navy was anti-prostitution. Brought federal and local police down on Reid many times. In addition to the morality issue, the Navy had too many venereal disease cases to deal with.
Whore houses as such are gone today. Replaced by escort services and socially acceptable strip joints/gentlemen’s clubs.
Enjoy your day!
