The Right Reverend Gweko Phocker, aka Gary Ek, second from right, replied to this post yesterday in the Sloan for Mayor Facebook group:
Rick Roberts, aka Raccoon, responded by email to this part of yesterday’s post at goodmorningkeywest.com:
Actually, the mayor part of the forum was cancelled after incumbent Craig Cates, left photo, declined to participate, which the Citizen well knows, so why did it not report that? Hmmm, could the Citizen be in Mayor Cates’ pocket and does not want to make him look to the Citizen’s readers like, hmmm, a self-centered, arrogant, we are indeed not all created equal members of one human family elitist bubba Conch coward …
Fuck. Don’t sugar coat it – tell us how you really feel….
I replied yesterday afternoon, about an hour before the Hometown candidate forum started:
I was trying to be restrained. A bit ago I was able to locate a yellow rubber chicken at the halloween store in the Winn-Dixie shopping center, where Kari thought she had seen rubber chickens hanging out. The chicken and I might be having a conversation in a little while at Hometown’s forum.
Perfect. Tell them you brought along Craig Cates so they could see his side of the fence…
Make sure you practice the “funky chicken” before you go…

I replied after I’d done the funky chicken at the candidate forum:
No time to practice it, other than mentally; it came to me on the wing, so to speak. I just watched a Facebook video shot from the audience of perhaps 98 percent of my skit, but the audio is awful, not intelligible in most parts with my audio turned up all the way on my lap top. Perhaps you can enhance the audio? Here’s a link:
I emailed Rick this morning:
Hometown’s video should be available by tomorrow or the next day, it should have my entire skit in it, which led off the wannabe electeds parade yesterday evening. Am reluctant to say more about my part, as the Hometown video, and perhaps the video Arnaud Girard shot, which I also have not yet seen, tells it better than I ever could in words. Today’s Key West Citizen has a long front page article about the forum, the different races and candidates, but not a peep or a cheep about the mayor’s race or my skit. The Citizen is not protecting Craig “Chicken” Cates? The Citizen is not in his pocket? The Citizen is a real newspaper? Perhaps the Citizen should change its name to Pravda West?
Leaving the tiny kingdom for the big top, a former Key West resident, who had to move to where she could afford to live, put this onto Facebook yesterday:
