Key West just keeps growing on a person. Each passing days adds to that good Key West feeling. No question. It is that God is in His Heaven, all is right with the world feeling!

Even doing nothing is a big deal!

My yesterday started with the Key West Lou Legal Hour internet show. Good again! I am not being immodest. The show is excellent and fun to do.

Thank you all who watched. Those that did not, try next week. You will not be disappointed.

After the show, it was the Coffee House. Browsed the New York Times.

Home for lunch. Me and my blender.

I spent the afternoon outside in the shade of the tiki hut. Researched and wrote.

This past week was the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. Fort Sumter.

I have always been a student of two wars. The Civil War and World War II. I fooled around a bit on the computer regarding the Civil War. Came up with two new tid bits.

Abraham Lincoln is considered one of our great Presidents. Many of his words live with us even today. Some guide us. Lincoln made a profound statement I had never read before: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. It will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Something to think about.

I had not heard of Daniel Sickles till yesterday. A Yankee Civil War general, a rogue, a politician, a Medal of Honor winner and a murderer. All wrapped up in one person!

Sickles is best known for being the first to have successfully asserted a temporary insanity defense. His wife was cheating on him. With the son of Frasncis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner. Sickles shot Key dead. Turned himnself in. Degraded and embarassed his wife greatly during the trial. Reconciled with his wife after the trial.

 Today’s Amazon Kinlde legal blog will be about Sickles.

Donna and Terri have returned! Though I have not seen them yet. They are still sleeping. They arrived around 4 this morning.

Terri is doing a solo performance tonight San Carlos. Jenna and I will be attending together. Do yourself a big favor. Go! Terri is terrific!

Enjoy your day!

    — common sense for all civilizations if you follow history. Lincoln was a master of the obvious before the internet told him what to say. Rome, Greece, ancient China, and the British (even though they act they have a colony still) … u name a powerful country, they all did the same mistake – internal corruption.
