Weather changed dramatically overnight. Eighty three degrees yesterday. High 70s to low 80 temperatures the past month. This morning, 68 degrees. The projected high for the day.
A cold front. Did not know it was coming. Paid no attention to recent weather reports. Tomorrow’s high will be 83.
A strong cold wind coming in from the northeast. Started hearing it during the night. Still blowing.
My day yesterday did not go as planned. I intended to get out for a while during the afternoon. Perhaps watch the Syracuse game at Jack Flats. My KONK Life column changed things.
Meet the Press was boring me. I decided at 10:30 to begin this week’s column. Three to 4 hours. It took me 6 hours. Worked non stop till 4:30.
Sometimes that is the way it is.
The column is titled “Women, You Have To Treat Them Like Shit.” Not my words. Donald Trump’s.
The column is a combination of matters most are unaware. Like the dramatic increase in credit card debt, China buying up U.S. hotels, Putin having a Syria exit strategy, FDA safe and effective finding re chemicals used in GMO mosquitoes for mosquitoes and not humans.
Also, lead contamination nationwide, Oreos moving 600 jobs from Chicago to Mexico, Venezuela’s multitudinous problems, and a move to have pornography legally declared a public health crisis.
The column more opinionated than normal. It publishes wednesday.
Watched the Syracuse/Mid Tennessee game from the comfort of a recliner chair at home. Syracuse won 71-50. This game and the Dayton one were won by Syracuse having an outstanding second half each game.
Syracuse now moves on to the Sweet Sixteen.
Syracuse had a poor season. I did not think they would make the NCAA tournament. For whatever reason, they did. At this point, it is obvious Syracuse belonged.
Before the tournament started, Don was kidding me about Syracuse’s selection. Lucky, he said. They do not belong. I told him Syracuse would make the Sweet Sixteen. He laughed at me. No way!
I can now laugh at Don.
All Syracuse has to do is win two games this week and the team will be in the Final Four. I am not predicting it will happen. A dream. Again, I am happy we got this far.
President Obama’s visit this week to Cuba an historic event. First time in 88 years an American sitting President has visited the island.
I am happy the U.S. is becoming friends once again with Cuba. Maybe it is because I live in Key West. Only 90 miles from Cuba. Cuba is frequently part of our every day conversation.
Though Cuba is a tiny country, Obama’s visit has all the excitement of Nixon’s 1972 visit to China.
The Presidential candidates, except for Sanders, will speak today before a prominent Jewish organization. AIPAC. I hope the event is televised. I am anxious to hear every one’s position, especially Trump’s.
Enjoy your day!
