DeSantis wins again! The NAACP issued a travel advisory for Florida. Says Florida “has become hostile to Black Americans.”
A new question for the week re DeSantis.: Who’s paying for all his private flights? For a guy with a reported net worth of just over $300,000, the Florida governor travels in style.
His campaign finance reports, flight tracking data base and corporate records reveal 55 “wealthy, most Florida based contributors and donors” have financed DeSantis’ private air travel. His system simple. Some lobbyists and donors say they have “become accustomed to calls from the Governor’s political aides asking ‘for planes.’”

There were two heroes. Not the usual one alone. The other was a teaching golf professional. Not the usual tournament player. His name Michael Block. A limited number of PGA club pros are allowed entry. Rarely do any exceed. Block did over the 4 days. He was the “hero” during the tournament. Fans cheered him along the way. He was somewhere around the top 10 constantly.
He finished the tournament in 15th place. His playing partner in the final round was Rory McIlroy. By finishing in the top 15, he gets to play in the PGA next year again.
Even more exciting, he got a hole in one yesterday on the 15th hole. The ball went in on the fly. Did not even hit the pin. The crowd went wild!
He even made some money. He earned $288,333.
What a day for America’s newest hero!
Block is no kid. He is 46. His victory caused him to cry several times.
A quiet weekend for me. Never left the house. Watched golf, old movies and napped. Have to push myself to get out today.
Enjoy your day![livemarket market_name="KONK Life LiveMarket" limit=3 category=“” show_signup=0 show_more=0]
