KEY WEST, Fla. -- The tourists line the pier dutifully at sundown, every sundown, to watch a fat orange sun fall into an aquamarine sea.In the '60s, it was stoned students who gathered, in a hippie tribute to the end of the day. Today, the tourists tend to be gray-haired, in sensible shoes, fanny packs strapped snugly around their waists. They're there because the Key West tourism machine thrums incessantly that this is where all visitors must be, drink in hand, at sundown.But these tourists are not really Key West.
