Some things I do not understand.
Trump telephoned Putin yesterday to congratulate him on his reelection victory. He did this after his staff specifically advised him not to.
Putin is our enemy. He is playing with the U.S. and laughing while doing it. Especially when Trump sucks up to him.
The blind cannot see. Maybe Trump is blind when it comes to Putin. Or, perhaps he can see but acts the way he does because of some nefarious activities in the past which Putin holds over Trump’s head.
My day yesterday was spent preparing for last night’s podcast. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. I believe the show one of the best done. It flowed. Covered everything from the Key West Cemetery to Trump power gone mad.
Tonight, the Chart Room at 6. The beginning of Don and Chris’ wedding celebration. They marry saturday.
This morning’s Key West Citizen ran an article re woonerf. Spelled correctly. Also known as a shared street.
The article advised Miami was going to try a woonerf in a four block area of the Wynwood section.
A woonerf is where cars, bikes, and pedestrians share the pavement on an equal footing.
Sounds strange. But, it works.
Experienced it on my several trips to Novara in northern Italy. Anna’s condo sits in a 1,500 year old building. The building sits on a wide street. Cars, bikes and people move freely over the street. There is no sidewalk. Everyone exercises caution. Cars travel a bit slower.
Never experienced a problem. Never even gave it a thought that the street was being shared by everyone.
The fourth northeaster of the month hitting the northeast. Don’t tell me global warming does not exist.
The northeaster incidentally affects Key West. The temperature will drop to 63 this evening.
Irma hit September 10. Though still recovering, the Keys have done well.
The story is not the same with Puerto Rico.
Things were bad at the beginning. I blame Trump for turning his back on the American citizens living there.
I saw some photos on the internet this morning of present day damage. Doesn’t look much better than six months ago. I continue to blame Trump.
The article I read said the US Army Corps of Engineers have pulled back on some of their assistance. Federal help has been grossly insufficient. I worry it will take a generation for Puerto Rico to recover.
I wrote a few days ago that Trump was mean and vindictive. The failure to properly assist Puerto Rico an example of his meanness and vindictiveness. Six months later, Puerto Rico is a society still in pain.
I sometimes wonder if his failure to help the Puerto Ricans has to do with the color of their skin. Most are tan.
Ben Carson is Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. His wife is Candy.
Carson thought his office needed a new dining set. The old worn, nails sticking out.
He left the task of securing one to his wife. Candy allegedly spent the $31,000 without his knowledge. Carson takes no blame. She did it!
Appears to me Carson threw his wife under the bus.
Enjoy your day!
