Monday was a disgrace. A shame.

Israel killed 59 Palestinians, eight of them children. Injured 2,700. So many that the hospitals could not handle them all. Medical personnel, medicines, dressings, etc. were insufficient.

Palestinians were protesting. On their side of the fence. The power and might of war machinery on the other side of the fence. Israel sending drones and missiles,  in addition to shooting over the fence.

Ian Welsh is a noted blogger and editor. He wrote, “The simple fact is that too many Israelis now think of Palestinians as sub-human: animals to be killed if they are inconvenient.”

I recall when Israelis were abused. Those who abuse tend to become abusers. Such has happened to Israel.

Finally got my car back yesterday. The brake light problem was not a simple one involving a new fuse. Needed a brake switch. Had to come from Miami. First one that arrived the wrong one. Returned to get another. The order got lost in Miami. Finally, the correct brake switch arrived.

Lights worked. Voila!

Problem: Brakes were locked. Could not drive. Car had to remain at garage overnight.

Whatever, I was happy to have my car back yesterday. Decided I was entitled to a feast of sorts.  Lunch at Sandy’s Cafe. Cuban cheese toast with tomato and a large Cuban coffee. Always delicious!

Then home. I still had to finalize, revise my podcast to be delivered last night. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou.

Dinner before the show at Lisa’s. Robert’s birthday. Fourteen years old. Blew out the candles and sang Happy Birthday!

Robert and Ally had to leave the table immediately following the cake. They begin final exams today.

I enjoyed delivering the podcast last night. So many exciting, interesting, and disgusting events occurring worldwide. Kim Jung Un threatening to call off his summit with Trump, American Embassy opening in Jerusalem resulting in 59 dead and 2,700 injured, and American designated evangelist Pastor Robert Jeffress offering a prayer at the Embassy opening, among the topics. Jeffress especially interesting. He has repeatedly said over the years that “Jews will go to Hell.”

The best of the best however was the China/ZTE/Trump story. A quid pro quo. Three days before Trump announced we have to help China retain jobs, a Chinese bank loaned $500,000 million to an Indonesia theme park in the making. Trump’s company is part of the theme park. A Trump hotel, golf course, and condominiums.

A recent study re States and healthcare has Florida in poor standing. It ranked Florida 48th among all 50 States and the District of Columbia.

Two great white sharks traced near Florida Keys. Hilton and Savannah. Yes, they have names. They were tagged several months ago and are being followed.

Hilton a male, 12’5″, 1,300 pounds. Savannah a 8’6″ female.

They are moving north. Will travel up the Atlantic coast line. Expected to move closer to Key West the next few days.


Enjoy your day!



  1. And if the sharks should, by chance bite someone, Lou will find some way to link it back to blaming Trump. I like your style. So unenlightening. Roll on.

  2. I get such a kick from those whose ignorance (or is it arrogance) about such things. Wasn’t it Trump himself that harped relentlessly (and incorrectly) about Obama’s birth? Chickens coming home to roost? (STFU)

    • Oh wait, what does Obama’s birth have to do w great whites. (Stfu), your as blind as Lou, and apparently less intelligent.

      • Nothing about sharks but a rather obvious (to most people) reference to the over-the-top partisan hypocrisy by the person complaining about Lou’s regular criticisms of Donald Trump’s very frequent stupid moves. To be clear, one should first heal thy self before criticizing others. It only shows how your blatant hypocrisy exceeds your own intelligence.

        • I’m still waiting for the information to come out about BHO’s college records. I have read from many different sources, that he lied about being an immigrant, so he could receive entrance and benefits as a non-US Citizen. Thereby, starting the rumor that he wasn’t born here.

          Sooner or later, those records will be released, “vindicating” the birther movement, because it was started with lies from BHO himself.

  3. Israel killed 59 Palestinians, eight of them children.

    Turns out that 60 were killed. 50 of them Hamas members, attempting to cross the border and kill Jews.

    And why would good parents bring children to a dangerous protest?

    • “…attempting to cross the border and kill Jews” – SAYS WHO? fox news? That part was a total spin! Next time they’ll claim we didn’t shoot them, they just got in the way of our bullets.

      • You are what is often referred to as a useful idiot. What do you think the 50 dead Hamas fighters were going to do after they crossed the border into Israel? At what point has Hamas recognized Israel’s right to exist?

  4. A recent study re States and healthcare has Florida in poor standing. It ranked Florida 48th among all 50 States and the District of Columbia.
