Today is the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Tourists will come to Key West in droves. Like Attila the Hun and hordes of old.
Normally, the onslaught would be welcome. Key West is a tourist town.
Some/many residents are not happy about Key West being an open town again. Except for the bar and restaurant owners. Coronavirus is still with us. While the flock of tourist will be open and visible, corinavirus is not. It is like a thief in the night.
Key West will pay later this month. The numbers will surge. Elsewhere also as the tourists return home and spread the contagion where ever they live.
The City Commission and bar owners have made a mistake. The ultimate cost of contagion and possibly death not worth it.
This day in 1969, the FDA reported birth control pills were safe. Changed a woman’s approach to sex dramatically. It was a new world!
Coronavirus and sex. Canada’s top medical person issued a statement this week concerning the subject.
Only have sex with your steady partner. Wear a mask when kissing. Avoid all face contact.
He also recommended use of a condom. Even though there is no evidence as yet that coronavirus can be contacted through semen or vaginal fluids.
Atlantic ran an article this week about Trump and the many he considers “losers” and “suckers.” Like soldiers, Marines killed in the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I, and John McCain because he was captured.
Recall when he was in France with other foreign leaders. They were attending a military cemetery in France. Trump did not go. Used the “losers” excuse. The real reason is said to have been it was raining and Trump feared it would muss his hair.
Trump’s failure in not recognizing coronavirus early and his overall failure to do correct things to reduce the virus’ contagion has resulted in roughly 180,000 deaths to date. Experts predict the number will be 410,000 by January.
Medical and scientific experts are not at all confident that there will be a vaccine by November 3.
Barr should be disbarred.
A lawyer’s word is everything. Barr has forgotten or does not care. He lies as does the President.
Barr recently claimed a Texas man collected 1,700 ballots and filled them out as he pleased. The comment made in support of Trump’s position that mail balloting leads to big time fraud.
Turns out Barr’s representation of the Texas man was not true. Fact check found the statement to be false.
There are concerns we are facing a government shut down. Need a budget by the end of the month.
The parties have yet to address the situation as it should have done. The new stimulus package in the way.
Pelosi is down to $2.2 trillion. Barely fair. The Republican Senate to $500 billion. Not even in the ball park.
The mighty fall. I refer to the “great” nations the world has known.
The U.S. itself and the rest of the world considered the U.S. the strongest nation up to the time of Trump’s election. The U.S. could very well have dropped to second place under Trump. It could mark the end of U.S. dominance in the world.
The Roman Empire was another great nation. Nothing is forever, however. History wise, this day in 476 A.D. is recognized as the traditional end of the Western Roman Empire.
Romulus Augustulus, last Western Roman Emperor, abdicated after forces led by Odoacer invaded Rome.
Heat spell time!
It is expected 50 million will be exposed to unusually high warmth this weekend.
I had a doctor visit yesterday. It was hot outside! Ninety two degrees wit heavy humidity.
Nothing like air conditioning!
I mentioned earlier this week that United Airlines announced it was furloughing 2,850 pilots.
A further report has come out. The number has increased to 16,370. In addition to the 2,850 pilots, 6,920 flight attendants and 2,100 technicians.
My feelings are increasing that May Johnston may be fooling around. She has Ernesto out of town. Miguel in town.
Today’s diary entry in 1896 reports that her mother “brought up the Miguel subject again, I got up and left.”
Big day at the hospital for me. A 2 1/2 hour test. Hope this is the last one.
I have done well with the previous tests. I am beginning to think the doctors are going to test me till they find something.
Enjoy your day!
