Uber can operate in Broward and Dade Counties. Uber cannot operate in Key West. It is against the law. A local law.
The reason Key West prohibits Uber and Lyft is what is known as the Bubba system. Take care of your friends. In this case, the taxi companies.
A close knit group. A monopoly in effect for those who have licenses to operate.
It has been a significant number of years since Key West has given a taxi license to another company or person.
Our City Commissioners: Wake up! The future is here!
A lot of running around yesterday.
Want a cell phone stand. Went everywhere. Verizon, Office Max, etc. No one sells stands. Probably because a cheap item. I will have to order one over Amazon.
Publix for groceries. Crowded for a monday.

The final game of the Final Four last night. North Carolina won. Beat Gonzaga by 5 or so points.
One of the most unexciting games ever. Not the fault of the players. The referees responsible. Called too many fouls in the second half. Many bullshit. Never gave the kids an opportunity to play, to get into a flow.
Trump seems to suck up to the not so nice countries. Many whose standards are less than ours.
Yesterday, it was Egypt. The Egyptian President visited. Trump embraced him as our boy! Told him he had Trump’s personal friendship.
The present Egyptian administration took over as a result of the 2011 Arab Spring revolt. Obama and Hilary wrong at the time. They supported the revolutionaries against Mubarak. Mubarak who had been a true friend for years.
The new Egyptian administration bad people. Its track record despicable. Contrary to american values in many respects.
It is told Lincoln dreamed of his assassination 10 days before it occurred. Seven days after the dream, he told his friend Ward Hill Laman about it.
Three days later, an assassin’s bullet killed Lincoln.
The following reported in a recent Washington Post article.
Vice-President Pence has some quirky (my description) religiously motivated actions. Founded in the first instance by Billy Graham. Never be alone with a woman, avoid temptation.
Pence believes a man should never dine alone with a woman. Nor work alone with women…..I don’t work with women. If they’re attractive, I’m too tempted. And if they’re not what’s the point?
Pence does not attend an event where alcohol is served unless his wife is with him.
The best is the Mrs. Butterworth episode.
Mrs. Butterworth is a syrup. Sold in a container the shape of a bare woman. Pence was at a table waiting for others including his wife. A Mrs. Butterworth bottle in his line of vision. He asked the waiter to remove it from the table till his wife arrived.
His wife arrived. Pence asked the waiter to pour syrup out of the Mrs. Butterworth container on his pancakes. Pence did not wish to touch the bottle.
Crazy? Strange at the very least.
Enjoy your day!
