There is a The Key West Citizen calls for state takeover of Florida Keys school district – AMEN! post today at goodmorningfloridakeys.com.
Meanwhile, an attention getting letter to the editor in The Key West Citizen today – www.keysnews.com – from a fellow who kept the Key West Poetry Guild running and meeting for many years:
Bigger ships are not in city’s best interest
Cruise ships are already too big. I looked up the history of the Disney Magic cruise ship. Americans can build great ships, but Disney preferred to build this one in Italy for $350 million. It should have supplied many American jobs.
Then it was registered in Nassau, Bahamas, to evade American vessel-quality requirements. The income it makes from American passengers goes straight to Disney’s corporate treasury in California — where the CEO makes $20 million per annum — not to American workers.
At 964 feet in length, the Magic is 80 feet longer and holds more passengers than the Titanic did! But some local tourist operators think this isn’t big enough. They feel we should dredge the ship channel and further degrade the environment so that bigger ships can get in.
AARP Magazine, one of the largest-circulation magazines in the USA, in its January 2013 edition, in an article about cruise ships titled “Clear Sailing: No-hassle Ports,” advises cruisers to skip Key West because “Its charms are hidden on crowded cruise-ship days.”
The cruise ship golden goose is beginning to sicken from greed. Don’t make it worse by overcrowding Duval Street, our main street, with cruisers.
