Another great Key West Lou Legal Hour yesterday! I love doing the show. God is good!

My minimum wage dissertation interested many. Especially when tied in with the working poor. The topic drew the most response post show.

Yesterday’s show is available 24 hours a day on You Tube. A few You Tube wrinkles still being worked out. However, it is there.

I wrote next week’s KONK Life column. On the minimum wage. Tied it into the working poor. Felt the issue was newsworthy as so many people seemed to be into it. I liked the completed article. Published it immediately on Amazon Kindle as well.

Key West experienced one of those monsoon type rainstorms thursday night. My cell phone was charging at the time. When I took it off charge after the storm, everything was screwed up. The face was different. The icons different. Nothing where it had been. I could find nothing. Could not even figure out how to call out.

After yesterday’s show, I went to Verizon to get the phone fixed. There was no problem. At the same time as the storm, Verizon was changing over to something new. That is why my phone was as it was. It was not broke.

I was not intertested in the new format. I was comfortable with the old. I wanted the phone changed back to the old system. No way, I was told. You have to use the new. So teach me, I said. It took all of two minutes.

Mechanically inclined I am not. I get nervous when something changes or goes wrong.

Visited the Chart Room alone last night. All the people! We are into a three day holiday weekend. Tourists arriving in droves.

I saw Peter sitting by the wall. I joined him for a drink.

Had a date. Jenna at eight. Picked her up. We headed to Ambrosia for dinner.

Jenna never eats. Runs 5 miles a day or roller blades. I should be so thin!

She eats sushi, however. More than me! We had a good time. Sipped champagne along with the meal.

I had not been to Ambrosia in a couple of years. I prefer Orgami for sushi. Not because of the food, but the ambiance. Very calm and settled. Whereas Ambrosia is a modern high ceilinged emporium with a Las Vegas flavor. Interesting and pleasant in its own way.

I had seen in the paper earlier in the week that the Bottle Cap was having a ’50s, ’60s and ’70s music night last night. From eight to midnight. Apparently for the old folk such as myself.

Jenna was really not interested in going. She is a mere 27. Not here type music. She went to accomodate me.

The Bottle Cap was empty. At 9:30. Only Jenna and me. The bartender said no one had come to the event. They were not even playing the old music when we arrived.

Jenna and I had one drink at the bar and left.

Remember Becha? My Becha! The manager at La Trattoria for years. No more. She is now working at Bottle Cap. After a 20 year run at La Trattoria. We hugged. Love her hugs. Intoduced Becha to Jenna.

I dropped Jenna off. Then to Don’s Place. Don had telephoned earlier and said drop by.

Don and I spent a long time at the corner of the bar chatting. Without a doubt, Don is one of Key West’s nicest people.

Syracuse basketball tonight. Against Seton Hall. Eight o’clock. I will be at John Lukas’ Big Ten Sports Pub. John is doing a Syracuse night. Free pickies during the game!

The meteor that zoomed over Russia is some thing! The news reported it had the force of 30 Hiroshima atomic bombs!

Betweem now and the game tonight, I am going to screw off. Just lay around. My body is telling me to do it.

Enjoy your day!


  1. Raising the minimum wage is covert payoff to Unions and Gooferment workers (i.e., a raise to the bottom pushes up everything tied to it).

    It increases unemployment of low skill people (i.e., minority youth).

    The poor are force onto the dole! (and become loyal democratic voters)

    AND probably worst of all, it inserts the Gooferment into a private agreement between individuals.

    Sorry, but reductio ad absurdum, why not make it 90$ per hour?

    Argh, I really feel sorry for Liberals, they are so cute, they care, but manage to shoot everyone in the foot!

  2. Can’t say I agree with much that reinkefj spouts on about. Studies by conservative and liberal thin k tanks have demonstrated that a “living minimum wage” defined as working full-time and keeping a family of 4 above poverty actually increased GDP and economic activity as the increased income leads to spending (the Walmart Mantra) and life “off the dole.”

    Those darn so-called conservatives keep thinking propping up failed banks and businesses is a “free market” activity” so their donors get on the corporate welfare dole. It is welfare only on a massive scale for few people as opposed to welfare for the poor on a massive scale for the poor. Both abject failures!

    As a retired “Gooferment worker” as reinkefj calls me, I wonder how he feels about those of us that responded to frantic 911 calls to save lives, stop suicides and prevent domestic violence? Of course, in the NRA view we are all Jesse James and simply fast draw our way out of all problems. And what of those Gooferment firefighters that die saving life and property? Or perhaps people like my Father In Law who was employed by the Gooferment as a solider to defend the rest of us losers and ended up spending 4 lovely years in Chinese Prison Camp? Those useless Gooferment works in Irag and Afghanistan as well, eh reinkefj?

    All useless parasites on the GDP that get in the way of Hedge fund traders and yachtsmen that are the real Amerika! Go Wall Srreet! So what’s the next bubble?
