It cannot be left unsaid. The situation worsens by day. Trump is insane and incompetent.
The brown shirts marched saturday in Charlottesville. Accompanied by those who believe white people are better than others. Accompanied by those who once covered their bodies and faces in white sheets.
Bannon came out of the woodwork. Spoke at length about his beliefs. A revolutionary at heart. Seeking the overthrow of existing government.
Bannon Trump’s Rasputin.
Is a Reichstag next? The White House or Capitol? If so, all that will remain will be the concentration camps.
America stand up!
Impeachment will come. The grounds set forth in Article II section 4 of the Constitution: “…..impeachment for…..Treason, Bribery, and other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Stopped at Don’s Place first last night. Jimmy and John at the bar. Deep sorrow. Joanie not doing well. Hospice has been called in.
Then to the Chart Room.
John bartending. English Peter at the bar. Jean Thornton and Erika Biddle stopped in.
The last time I saw Erika Biddle was at Publix. I wrote about her at the time. Went back and discovered it was April 27, 2015.
At the time, a lovely blond woman came over and said, “You’re Louis Petrone.” She was familiar with my KONK Life writings and radio show. She wanted to tell me.
When she told me she was Erika Biddle, I was ashamed. I should have been searching her out. One of my Key West idols.
Last night was the second time we met.
Erika German born. A community activist where ever she has lived. An environmentalist at heart.
She arrived in Key West in 1994. Her first thought was: “This is the only city I’ve ever visited where I am not the most eccentric person around.” She remains to this day. An intrinsic part of the community. All heart.
Erika takes up causes that others might not. Unpopular ones included. This tiny woman carries the pain of others on her shoulders.
I hope I do not have to wait two more years before visiting with her again.
I was hungry. Stopped at Outback for prime rib. Ran into Doc and his wife.
I have known Doc some 20 years. Used to play golf with him. Only know him as Doc. A retired surgeon from Philadelphia.
We chatted a bit. I rarely run into people older than me. Mentioned I was 82. They shocked me! He 83 and she 85. Both appear in their mind 60’s.
A fun conversation ensued.
Dinner tonight at Berlin’s with Jenna. For sure. She just confirmed.
Enjoy your day!
