There are many important issues confronting the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump has been making a mockery of the courts. Soon some of his cases will reach the Supreme Court and continue his mockful use of the court system.

A case is now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court will meet in private conference December 1 to decide if it will take the case. The issue is whether honking a car horn is a Constitutionally protected form of free speech.

What a waste of valuable time for for the federal judicial system and Supreme Court with which to deal.

A pic of Thanksgiving dinner at La Te Da with Don and Chris. I’m getting old and shrinking in the process. I was sitting up straight. I have lost 4 inches in the last few years.


Key West Lou Thanksgiving


War is an ongoing topic. One or more somewhere every year. Ernest Hemingway’s insight on war is interesting: “I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a method of settling international disputes.”

The “draft” in 1864: All men in Key West between the ages of 18 and 45 were ordered to report for the “militia.” A special commission was established to rule on exemptions.

The weather in most parts of the country is taking a nose-dive. Getting cold! Snow in the north. More coming. Dropping temperatures in the south, including Key West.

My home town Utica already has snow. Low temperatures. Yesterday, it was 39 degrees. Today the high will be 40 and the low 23. Tomorrow, the winner! High 30 and low 23. Plus tomorrow will also bring 6-10 more inches of snow.

I have not seen snow in 17 years. Hope to never experience it again.

Key West was a comfortable 78 degrees yesterday. The cold up north will affect us however as it normally does. Today’s temperature will be a high of 79. The cold will hit tonight. Temperature will drop to 70. Tomorrow, a real impact. High only 74 degrees, low a cold 67.

People who do not live in Key West find it hard to understand that we feel cold at 74 degrees. Sixty seven will be horrible! Especially for me. My new living quarters are without heat.

No podcast today. Problems again. Sloan working on them. Getting exasperated in the process. Word Press working on it also. No podcasts for a few days.

Enjoy your day!
