Day in and day out, damn near every day of every month, as on the official city calendar from this month. (Sorry, the HTML mangles a bit.)

USATODAY.com - Four Cuban coast guardsmen defect in Key West

I was in Miami when this happened (and, ironically, I was in Cuba myself a week later). The really humorous part of this story is how far they had to walk before they even found a police officer. Now it was early in the morning. But, I always use this story to point out how laid back Key West is. Four Cubans, in Cuban military uniforms, one with a pistol on, who dock a patrol boat flying Cuban flags, can walk all over town, and they have to initiate contact with the police.

If that doesn't tell the story of what it takes to get in trouble in Key West, I don't know what does.
