the way DU has become, I'd get a hide for sure

EVERY single place in the country, hell the world, has problems. EVERY. SINGLE. PLACE.

GusBob, I know you know what I just said, but I had to say it. I'm a progressive, and I get really tired of people from other states gleefully bashing Florida. Do they think that motivates people to do better ? It doesn't motivate me. I didn't need anyone to dwell on our shortcomings.

People love the fact we pay no state income tax here, and voila, that creates a lack of revenue to do good things. The state lottery has been paying for most of education for years, when it was NOT supposed to supplant the usual revenue. People everywhere want good things for nothing, and Florida is no exception. No income tax and nice warm weather has attracted millions of people to live here for decades.

At any rate..... I know the Florida bashing will continue, and I'll go back to my usual vow of silence. Best wishes to you, Gusbob.
