from my state – literally and figuratively – and other places. i'm not in florida any more, but i haven't given up the sunshine.


an open letter to the mayor of key west

as monday, july 4 is an observed holiday for which many persons employed in the u.s. are exempt from work, i understand some may consider friday, july 1 through monday, july 4, collectively, as the ‘july fourth weekend.

with all due respect to the declaration of the independence of our nation, it seems the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit happiness, particularly under the current administration, have been significantly hampered. similarly, history has proven that our nation does not in fact consider all men created equal. and women and gays are in a lower caste all together.

for this reason - and as suitable for the long weekend following june 30 - i submit that in the city of key west, july 1-4 be declared the dirty thirty birthday weekend.

all those in favor …

I think you should have been a bit more specific about WHAT Key West is getting itself into this weekend. I kind of feel bad for the locals...
