Oh, the humor of it all! On this day 160 years ago, a visitor to Key West wrote: “It will cost a fortune to live here, at least $100 per month for a family of 4 or 5. Eggs $1 per dozen, cabbage 6-8 cents per head, tomatoes 20-22. Beef and potatoes you cannot get.”

Modern science is wonderful! Man’s achievements amazing!

On November 22, 1910, the Key West Naval Station sent wireless messages to the Mare Island Naval Yard near San Francisco. Distance 3,880 miles. Every word between the operators distinctly read. Today, we press a button on our cell phones and are speaking voice to voice in seconds.

Discrimination 1942. On this day, the Florida State Board of Health’s mobile x-ray unit was at the Monroe County Courthouse grounds in Key West to screen for tuberculosis. White residents this date, Black residents the following.

Live and learn. Common phrases in Shakespeare’s plays which are part of American dialogue today: “A wild goose chase” – Romeo and Juliet, “For goodness sake” – Henry VIII, “One fell swoop” – Macbeth, “Mum’s the word” – Henry VI, Part II, “All that glitters is not gold” – The Merchant of Venice, “Eaten out of house and home” – Henry IV, Part II, “Knock, knock! Who’s there?” – Macbeth, “It’s Greek to me” – Julius Caesar.

Interesting and amazing!

There are more which are saved to another day and another blog.

Pro-Palestinian protestors forced Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to stop. A group of 30 ran into the street and glued themselves to the parade pavement.

These Palestinian protests are getting crazier with each episode. Most have to be planned. Gluing one’s self to the street…..

Trump’s various threats made re his several litigations are too much. I wrote so a few months ago. I repeat it again. He’s literally getting away with everything short of murder. In some cases, might be encouraging the same. 

Enough is enough! 

A legal challenge has been filed against Macy’s alleging Macy maintains policies that perpetuate “illegal racial discrimination.” Such that denies career advancement to white straight men.

America First Legal is the party bringing the charge. It is a legal group led by Stephen Miller. You will recall he was a close adviser/intimate to Trump when he was Presidnet. He wrote most of Trump’s speeches. I compared him in those years to Hitler’s Joseph Goebbels.

Whether he is on the correct side of this issue, I do not know. His mere “association” with the claim makes it questionable in my eyes.

New House Speaker Mike Johnson’s views are becoming more apparent. He said letting people get abortions was causing “an American holocaust.”

Johnson has been Speaker approximately one month. In that time, his true inner nature has become evident. One observation he made is that humans are “inherently evil” and need to be “restrained” by the government.

I warned you this guy was bad news!

Robert and Ally telephoned me from Corey’s parents’ home in Cape Coral yesterday to wish me a Happy Thanksgiving Poppa! 

Love them!

Celebrated Thanksgiving with Don and Chris last night at La Te Da. We enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Outstanding!

A good time with good people. Syracuse snowbirds I have come to know well over the last 20 years.

Syracuse finally won a basketball game in the Maui Invitational. Destroyed Chaminade yesterday 105-56. Don’t get excited. The score does not mean Syracuse is that good. Merely means Chaminade is that bad.

Two great evenings. Tom and Fran Dixon wednesday night, Don and Chris Teich last night. Tonight open. Any takers?

Enjoy your day!

  1. You said “One observation he made is that humans are “inherently evil” and need to be “restrained” by the government.”

    NOT exactly “free speech” or “My Freedoms, My Freedoms” is it? But THEY still want him, because he is a “Republican” and NOT because of their so called “beliefs”
