Being the ever interested citizen, I watched Trump’s “show” at 6 last night. Nothing new. Same old same old, except been a while since Trump had some national CEO’s on.
I have a bitch.
Since day one, test kits, masks, etc. were always next week. Second week 1 million plus “next week.” Four million the representation for another next week. Nothing even close to the numbers represented ever arrived.
All talk. No action. No “promise made, promise kept.”
Last night, new numbers. In millions like you would not believe. Some next week, some in a month.
Always “tomorrow.” The problem is tomorrow never comes.
The media is having a field day with Trump’s Clorox/Lysol cure.
An article on 4/27 in Forbes was titled “Disinfecting Info: How Clorox and Lysol Took the White House to the Cleaners.”
The Boston Globe expressed itself editorially yesterday: “Disinfect the White House of Quackery.”
Even the Key West KONK Life E-Blast this morning in a Tim Weaver Bonehead Island cartoon: “The Press didn’t say ingest Clorox. An idiot would know better. He said inject Clorox! Inject!”
I fear coronavirus induced restrictions are being lifted too soon. Hope I am wrong. My guess is there will be an increase in Covid-19 cases and deaths in certain areas of the U.S. in 4-6 weeks.
Trump and his people love telling us “a promise made is a promise kept.”
My comment is limited to stimulus monies being sent to Social Security recipients who receive their Social Security payments by direct deposit. The deposits will be made by the end of April.
We shall see.
Key West beaches were opened yesterday afternoon at 4. One admonition: Masks preferred, but not mandatory.”
Blake Hunter’s Prime Time opened over the weekend at Studios of Key West. An opening party the first night following the performance.
I am going to receive many negative comments from what I am about to write.
This mornings KONK Life E-Blast contained a series of photos of those at the party. I know most of them. Are they crazy? Irresponsible? Most seniors. Maybe they thought they have been on earth long enough.
Whatever, they were hugging and standing close together. No 6 feet, not 3 feet, not 1 foot.
Love you all! Stupid move! Unless you believe it’s time to open things up. It’s like driving 100 plus miles an hour on U.S. 1.
An “only in Key West” occurrence. As reported in this morning’s Key West Citizen Keys History section.
On this date in 1992 “police made a gruesome discovery at a home on Southard Street: They found a man who had been dead for 2 months and his room mate was unaware he was dead.”
Twenty year old May Johnson still sick. If she were alive today, we would think it was coronavirus.
May’s April 28, 1896 diary entry states, “Still sick. In bed all day, very sick from effects of yesterday’s chill.”
May has been sick for at least a week.
Fitting words by Abraham Lincoln for today’s U.S.: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Mutiny on the Bounty for real. Not just a movie starring Clark Gable.
It was on this day in 1789 that the mutiny occurred on the HMS Bounty. Fletcher Christian and his followers set Captain Bligh adrift in a launch in the South Pacific.
Tuesday comes quickly each week. Tonight Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Join me at 9 my time for a bit of ranting and raving.
My primary topic concerns Dr. Anthony Fauci, the $3.7 million he allegedly gave to the Wuhan Laboratory, and Rudy Giuliani’s charge intimating Fauci’s purported wrongdoing. Very interesting.
Typical Giuliani muckraking.
Enjoy your day!
