Naturally, I found the site right when everything in my life was doing it's best to prevent me having any time to properly suss it out.
Thank you for the heads up.

I came to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe on it's initial television run in the UK during my residency there in the 1979-1983 time period (timeline details fuzzy: too many gargleblasters), so I've been a fan for years. TIME Digital ran an article on the site this issue, and re-introduced me to the importance of the Guide. Good to see it come to fruition at last. I trust their plug drew millions of hits.

I was a little surprised that there were no postings relative to Key West, since this qualifies at least as an important stop on the "drink till drunk, and pass out with relatively few repercussions" circuit. How many other locations draw hundreds of thousands of tourists with only the lure of 137 bars in a twelve-block area? Other than New Orleans, I mean.

Of course, it's about the only tropical island you can drive to, and the Florida Keys are home to the only living coral reef in the continental United States. Of course, the population is very forgiving of those whose lifestyles would cause consternation in other, less, uh, enlightened areas. And, aside from those pesky hurricanes that Africa seems to keep sending over, we enjoy pretty great weather year-round.

I just think we deserve at least a nod from H2G2. Are you nodding yet?

Signing off, this is KWDave, the voice of Key West on h2g2...
