JBLOGGER: Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957) on Kelly, Jack [MC1968]



Jack Kelly

My undergraduate school was Manhattan College. Over the past few years, Jack Kelly and I have run into each other at the Chart Room. Jack a Manhattan grad also. A bit younger than me. He graduated in 1968. I, 1957.

The Manhattan College thing provided instant bonding.

Jack once had a home on Cudjoe Key. Long gone. In recent years, he has been taking a week here and there to visit Key West.

Jack was at the Chart Room last night. Always good to see him. We talked a bit about Manhattan and some of the grads. One or two we both know. Then Jack surprised me. He is returning to Key West full time.

Jack is buying a home in Bayview. He is also in the process of closing on three restaurants. That’s returning big time!

One is the former Finnegan’s Wake. Last operated for several days as Backspace. Jack will be reopening it as Cayheuso. A tapas place.

Another is World of Beer. Near Sloppy Joe’s. Jack plans on naming the new establishment Jack Kelly’s Citizen. Such vanity! Not really. Turns out the location was the first home of the Key West Citizen.

The third place is on Front Street. Across from Two Guys. Not Island Dogs. Next door to Island Dogs. An empty two story commercial building.

The name of the new enterprise escapes me. Its purpose not. Jack intends it to be family friendly. In addition to food, etc., the restaurant will provide all kinds of games for the kiddies to busy themselves with. Even the parents.

Jack is retired Air Force. He presently lives in Washington, DC. He remains active with the Arnold Air Society.

Welcome back, Jack! Good luck!

Jack and I hung together for a few hours at the Chart Room. While there, I met Devin Callahan. A snow bird. He is in Key West frequently. Surprising we had not met before.

COMMENT: Trynosky, Stephen K. (MC1968)


SK Trynosky Sr. Manhattan ’68 commented on ENDNOTE: Moore, William ‘Bill’ [MC1977] on SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision

2015-Jul-07 http://www.beaufortobserver.net/Articles-NEWS-and-COMMENTARY-c-2015-07-06-278700.112112-A-rational-look-at-the-SCOTU

I believe two states actually voted for gay marriage. the other 35 had it imposed. So, it is basically a judicial fiat issued by an oligarchy (the courts). . It is to say the least a stretching of the Constitution giving the 14th amendment far more latitude than intended. The same argument can and probably will be used at a future date for polygamy and based on this precedent probably should be. As a conservative, you should be concerned with misuse of the language. Law of the land, to those of us educated at an earlier time would indicate something that worked its way through the legislature, the proper mechanism for passing a law. An out of wack court or president exceeding his Constitutional authority cannot in a Constitutional democracy be considered to be the “law” of the land rather, it is an order of the government. All the issues you raised, benefits, inheritance, visitation etc could have and probably would have been dealt with through the simple expedient of civil union. In many states that did not pass legislation on gay marriage, they already were.

As was pointed out with tongue in cheek by a conservative commentator a few weeks ago. Do you trust the same people who would bankrupt a bakery, photographer, a Pizza joint NOT to go after a church? Open your ears. The calls are there already. Any organization receiving any so called “benefit” from the government or administering a program funded by the government is subject to lose either or both. You know it is true whether or not you keep your head buried in the sand as we are “fundamentally” transformed.

[JR: … and my class mate of many years. Separate Gooferment from “civil society”! The only legitimate function of Gooferment is to prevent the use of force or fraud upon the population under its “protection”. I think it has strayed a long long way from that. Thanks, Steve.]

ENDNOTE: Reinke, F. John (MC1968) disagrees with Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957)


Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957) blogged:


*** begin quote ***

I feel compelled to comment further re the nine blacks killed while in church in Charleston. An act of white supremacy. Slavery was banned via the Civil War more than a 150 years ago. The Confederacy died with it. Confederate ideology not, however.

Things have gotten worse in the six years Obama has been President. Not his fault. The fault of those whites who cannot stand the thought of a black man in power.

*** end quote *** 

I disagree that it’s not Obama’s fault.

I strongly disagree with “who cannot stand the thought of a black man in power”.

He has practiced racially divisive tactics politically. Spoke out inappropriately at times. And, in general, demonstrated his youthful inexperience.

For example, after blaming guns for the killing, without mentioning the SSRI component of all but two of the mass murders by young males, he incorrectly states that this doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world. A fact that was quickly refuted by folks on the internet.

Then, instead of being Presidential and flying to Charlestown, he goes to Hollywood for two fund raisers.

This is his fault.

Leadership is badly lacking in this country. And, it’s taking all of us — black and white — down to Perdition.


Happy “independence day”. Lower case because “We, The Sheeple” have lost it by electing the corrupt politicians.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Dorothy Sweeney


Good Morning All,

From John Reinke, we hear of ” Grandma Sweeney’s ” fall. Mrs. Sweeney, Pete Sweeney’s mom, took a fall on Thursday that required some major surgery on her kneecap to reconstruct it. Surgery was done this past Friday and we pray that Mrs. Sweeney is recuperating free of pain and that her recovery is quick and free of complication. Knee surgery can be complicated. Mrs. Sweeney, besides being Pete’s Mom, has a very special place in John’s heart. She was an important caregiver to John as he was growing up so that John’s Mom was able to work. This special lady needs our prayers. Thank you. God Bless.

Phil Colon
