Nice! I appreciate your love of “real Florida“. A friend recently told me I shouldn’t be giving Florida a penny of my money. (My wife and I have spent a lot of time there, and even owned an investment home in Sarasota for five years. Natural Florida is incredibly beautiful.) I disagree. We’re not just going to give it over to those who don’t deserve it!

By the way, I loved Lauren Groff’s collection of short stories, Florida.

Hi Don, tell your friend that the city I live in has been reliably politically blue for decades. If politics is his complaint. Like everywhere else, not all of Florida is the same.
