Key West City Fathers are about as bright as the Congress of the United States. The City Commission is seriously considering expanding the sidewalks on Duval to permit outdoor dining
I thought the several month experiment with closing off certain portions of Duval was a disaster and waste. I did not hear many favorable comments re the experiment.
Some Duval parking places will be lost. City Commissioners do not seem to care when parking spaces are removed. Haven’t we lost enough already?
Duval itself is too narrow to begin with. It is going to be hell for other than foot traffic. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, mopeds, bicycles, etc. all vying for space. A guaranteed invitation to more accidents.
As far as I am concerned, the idea is as good as Trump’s was to kill General Soleimani.
The 1970’s for Key West were the roaring 20’s. Except for the method of getting high. Drugs replaced booze.
Several writers organized an informal social club. Named it Club Mandible. Twenty to thirty members. Wore special club shirts and had different club names. Like General Chaos and Private Parts. They generally “boogied.”
The Club spearheaded its members’ efforts “toward the unconscious.” Or, a rather a “punishing form of conscious.” The “punishing form of conscious” was a state easily realized due to the availability of drugs.
When the comedian John Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982, one of the members remarked that “he didn’t seem all that crazy by Key West standards.”
Michelle Goldberg is a New York Times opinion columnist. Her comments re Trump killing General Soleimani in yesterday’s Times right on: “There are no more adults in the room. After three harrowing years, we’ve reached the point many of us feared from the moment Donald Trump was elected. His decision to kill Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani…..made…..with little discernible deliberation, has brought the United States to the brink of a devastating new conflict in the Middle East.”
Iraq has said…..U.S. remove your troops from our land. A day or 2 before, the U.S. announced 4,000 troops from the 82nd Airborne had been deployed. Yesterday, it was announced 2,000 Marines were en route on the USS Bataan.
Don’t look like the U.S. is going anywhere.
Trump says the economy is good. I think not. Have not for quite a while. The stock market alone is not an accurate indication of the economical health of a nation.
The market also has the capacity as history tells us to drop suddenly and disastrously.
Businesses are hurting.
The most recent example is Pier 1 Imports. It was announced by Pier 1 that it is closing close to 450 stores. The number representing half its stores.
The rumor is Pier 1 is nearing a bankruptcy filing.
Its stock has dropped. In 2015, $300 a share. Around $5 today.
The last quarter of 2019 found sales decreased 11.4 percent from the same period the previous year. Pier 1 lost $59 million last year.
Nationally in 2019, there were 9,302 retail store closings. The closings 59 percent greater in 2019 that 2018.
As Trump tells us, the economy is good, the best ever.
Puerto Rico can’t seem to win.
In a 24 hour period, it was hit with 2 major earthquakes. A 5.8 magnitude one monday morning at 5:32 am. A stronger one this morning at 3:24 am. A magnitude 6.4. The second one knocked out the electrical system for the entire island.
There may be more earthquakes in the next few days. The experts had predicted the second one. Fortunately, no predictions re tsunamis.

Modern day cannibalism.
