August 28, 1565: Feast of St. Augustine, Menendez Names St. Augustine After His Saint's Day.

While Pedro Menendez landed and founded our City on September 8, 1565, he spotted it and named it on August 28, 1565, naming it after St. Augustine, an African Bishop and scholar whose works we still read today, and which I read as a Georgetown University freshman.

In the words of St. Augustine, "An unjust law is no law at all."

Our City must repeal its unjust laws against making art and music on St. George Street, a stench in the nostrils of our Nation

A succession of stinky "unjust laws" was repeatedly struck down by federal courts and once ruthlessly enforced by S perpetrated by the police state tactics wrought by misguided misanthropes, including longtime City Manager WILLIAM BARRY HARRIS and his willing accomplices, including controversial St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, who as a patrolman and SAPD Police Chief conducted a reign of error, arresting street musicians and artists, along with ex-Mayors JOSEPH LESTER BOLES, JR., CLAUDE LEONARD WEEKS, JR. -- disgraced ex-Mayors profiteering from their no-bid lucrative lease deal for City land for 81 St. George Street, which helped lead to BOLES' ignominious defeat by Nancy Shaver in 2014.

As LBJ said to Congress after Selma, "we SHALL overcome."
