Mosquito Control

A quiet street in the early morning hours somewhere in Key West...

...when suddenly over the rooftops the sound of clattering 'copter blades shatters the morning stillness. No, it's not Robert Duvall strutting on a southeast Asian beach in a ten gallon hat.

It's just the Mosquito Control District's air force spraying the city to clear dengue carrying and other hazardous mosquitoes from their lairs. It's not Agent Orange they spray, but some people protest it's just as bad. Worse perhaps than the dreaded dengue. I survived dengue in my youth and I survive BT daily it seems. Robert Duvall I never did have to face.
