"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."

Personally, I'd love to see Florida go back to its natural state. Use the whole place as a nature preserve / ecological study.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
