Few would take lead comment this morning away from Pope Francis. One of the few is Yogi Berra. An outstanding baseball player, nice guy and recycler of the English language. It ain’t over ’till it’s over…..One of the best!
He died yesterday at the age of 90. Never will be forgotten. May he rest in peace.
Now for the second team. The Pope!
I was glued to the TV set yesterday watching his arrival in Washington. I found his arrival emotional. He speaks to the masses today outside at the National Mall. Tomorrow, he addresses a Joint Session of Congress.
Many dislike him. Prominent persons. Especially Republicans.
This morning’s column by George Will attacks the Pope without mercy. Certain Washington figures speak aggressively concerning him.
Why, I do not understand. The man is Christ like. He is being referred to as The People’s Pope. His concern is for the downtrodden. Not the wealthy, not capitalists. He simply says feed, house and clothe everyone, be concerned for everyone. What is so troublesome about such? Jesus spoke no differently.
The Seven Mile Bridge will be closed off and on today. For five minute periods each time. A permit has been given to an advertising firm to do so. A commercial is being filmed.
My yesterday started with an airport stop. It was good friend time. I picked someone up.
Roostica for lunch. I am becoming more Italian every day. Enjoyed a dish of sauce covered meatballs.
Spent the afternoon fine tuning last night’s blog talk radio show.
Dinner at Hurricane Hole. It had been several years since I was last there. It is close to my home. I stay away because the bar is not placed correctly. The setting sun shines directly on the bar. Reflects off the water onto the bar. A steam bath!
I sat at a table with an umbrela to avoid he sun. Fortunately, it was overcast which helped.
At 9, my blog talk radio show. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Two mid-east stories seemed the most popular.
The one about the Afghan commander who handcuffed a young boy to his bed. The boy was used as a sex slave by the commander evenings.
The other concerned Saudi Arabia. Our false friends. Saudi Arabia is Chairman of the UN Human Rights Commission. They are about to crucify a 20 year old for illegal protesting and carrying a gun. His head will first be chopped off. His body then hung headless on a cross for three days.
Screw off day today. Finally, wednesday! No writing to do. Except for this blog, of course.
Enjoy your day!
