Hello Key Biscayne!
Night time is the right time for a lot of things, but not really for newsletters. Good thing this one doesn’t have much news.
"Hallelujah, no one can see us!"
There is this video of a fox someone spotted, though.
Catch up on what’s up
🎓 Sadly, school starts on Monday across the county, so our time of peace and quiet is over. Well, it’s only sad if you don’t enjoy trying to hit kids with your car while they’re walking to school. In that case then your season is about to start.
💸 Are you a multimillion-dollar contractor and you’d like to turn the Rickenbacker Causeway into some kind of playground and tourist attraction, the RFP details are out from Dade County. If you’re not such a contractor and you want to bitch about it, the mayor of Dade will be on the Key tomorrow to talk about it.
🇭🇹 On a more serious note, there are some islanders getting things together to support victims of the earthquake in Haiti. You can give online or directly at Golden Hog, Novechichi, the Islander, or some nondescript spot at L’Esplenade.
From the peanut gallery
On the bottom of your shoe:
I would like to report a massive increase in unpicked up dog waste on the island. I have never stepped in so much excrement as I have this summer. Popular sites to leave dog feces for people to step in appear to be, but must not be limited to, the Village Green playground and any place someone might step off a sidewalk to make way for others as some people do these days. And I’ve seen the culprits, owners of tiny dogs with tiny poo that ends up all over this one Tropical Rag reader’s shoes. I suppose I should just watch where I step and accept that refusing to pick up your dog’s defecation, despite the doggie bag dispensers, may be another freedom that should not be contested for fear of reprisal, but that stinks.
