Losing Luster

Ah, Florida. We ain't what we used to be. Thank goodness.

And I think Carl Hiaasen has it exactly right.

In the forty plus years I've been living in Florida, I think I've read the same article about Florida going bust, or Paradise Lost, or one or the other of those doomsday scenarios about a dozen times. And yet, here we are, still smelling the cinammon breezes and watching the orchids bloom in February.
