Yeah. I read it, too. Now I feel bad.

Rubio is still better than Murphy or Grayson.
another rec, bought it cause I liked the cover. One of my favourite books ever.
This isn't what was meant by "keep your friends close but your enemies closer."
He used to have a future, didn't he? I forget.
Rudy has a point. Everyone knows that 9/11 happened while was in office. Bush is not to blame.
Marco must be defeated here in Florida.
- Little Marco is a little valiant by defying while supporting the con man Trump.
This is tantamount to Trump calling Hillary crooked when he spent years bribing and complimenting her.
Yes please do so and while at it fire Scott Bondi, and whole Republican leg. for approving dumping tox in hr water
Poor needs voters since he lost so badly in the primary. Sad!
. How are Floridians even considering re electing Rubio???
Great circus trick, speaking out of both sides of your mouth like that.
Marco Rubio would vote for any con man who can sell him shoes that let Rubio seem 1/2 inch taller
I'm glad I never supported him. Another establishment shill.
Read 's Dance of the Reptiles to truly appreciate the empty suit that is Little Marco

O'Roark It also has a side character that is quickly becoming my most favorite one since Christopher Moore's Abby Normal in You Suck, and Bite Me.Her name is Windy Breese, and she uses a lot if cliches, but she mangles them. Examples: "Marching to a different color", "Writing off into the sunset", "A stitch in the hand is worth two in the butt"...Her coworkers have stopped trying to correct her, and now, no matter how badly she mangles a cliche, most people know what she means and have become a little vague on what the original phase was...So they have started using hers..."He needs somebody to pass the scapegoat to...".

Muddying the waters far from home Carl Hiaasen chiaasen@ MiamiHerald.com Your tax dollars hard at work: The state of Florida has joined a lawsuit aimed at blocking a massive cleanup plan for Chesapeake Bay. The Chesapeake Bay. And, no, you can’t make this stuff up. Last week, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi filed a brief — paid for with your taxes — attacking the legality of the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint. The plan was devised by six bay area states, the District of Columbia and the federal government. Its mission is to improve water quality in the rivers, streams and estuaries of the Chesapeake region. A federal judge upheld the terms of the so-called blueprint, which will limit the amount of pollution being dumped, but the ruling is being appealed. Why would the state of Florida try to obstruct the cleanup of public waters hundreds of miles away from our own? Because Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott are complete tools. They aren’t suing on behalf of the citizens of Florida; they’re suing ...

.hm.82% support!!!. Floridians will have a chance to vote on legalizing medical marijuana, the state’s Supreme Court ruled Jan. 27., setting up a major battle in the populous southern state, and some searing commentary from legendary author Carl Hiaasen. A Quinnipiac University Polling Institute survey in late 2013 showed 82 percent of the public supported medical marijuana, which is great because unlike California, Colorado, or Washington, a constitutional amendment in Florida requires 60 percent voter approval for adoption. Naturally, elected Florida leaders are deeply opposed, including Florida’s entire Republican Party all the way up to Gov. Rick Scott. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and the state’s Republican leadership even sued to block a vote on medical marijuana, but the Florida Supreme Court narrowly ruled 4-3 to allow the vote to go forward. Reuters reports Charlie Crist, a former Republican governor of Florida who is running for Governor as a Democrat versus Scott in November celebra ...
A little feedback from Key West Literary Seminar. First, one would be hard pressed to find a more convivial, out going group than mystery/thriller writers. As a group, we seem lively, enthusiastic, perceptive, and more than ready to have fun. Probably the greatest mystery of this sort of gathering is precisely how we all think up the things we do. Twists and turns, tension and stress, characters that are put in anxiety-producing situations. Gunfire and bodies. Dark, moral, ethical questions abound in all the prose -- only to be contradicted by the often hilarious way we all engage with the world. I think the thing I've taken away from this weekend is that we aren't the people we create on the page. We may have some of their traits and some of their foibles -- both for good and for bad -- but they aren't us. Close... but... maybe just near relations... or good friends... or... Anyway -- a few observations about some of the other panelists. Carl Hiaasen is categorically one of the nation's great treasures. ...

History regurgitates itself. Read any history or biography—from Renaissance to Reconstruction, from Galileo to U.S. Grant—and you need only change dates and names to arrive at USA Today. That’s the time and place, not the newspaper, lest anyone think I’m warning against books as holiday gifts. While we keep saying that those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it, we overlook that those who do know it are doomed to watching everyone else repeat it. So why read it? As is true of everything else, the more you know, the more jokes you get. And, yes, the more pain you can withstand, the more controversy you can understand. With parallels on the front pages of any newspaper today, three books are sure to satisfy history buffs on your gift list: * The Third Coast (2013) by Thomas Dyja. Among Dyja’s dozens of double takes in time is how a Chicago marketing firm guessed that a weathered cowboy on the new device called television would erase public concern for the health effects of cigarettes: ...
