    I was sad to see this but not surprised: https://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-bz-porter-paints-historic-sign-20200222-uflrlw5yfbgk7a4yxvxz2tt5le-story.html From the Sentinel Iconic Porter Paints sign to be delisted from Orlando’s Landmark Sign registry.
  3. I was asked here recently about my challenges with Rep. Stephanie Murphy. This sums it up in a nutshell: https://twitter.com/fla_pol/status/1231164353707216896?s=21 Mike Bloomberg is the latest rich guy trying to buy his way into office.

As many disagreements as I have with Bernie and his Bros, he has twice now gone through the process and, if he wins, earned the right to be the nominee. All Bloomberg has done is write checks.

  10. A neon sign of the apocalypse? Once there’s a 7-Eleven on every corner, the world ends. THAT’S why their tag line is “Oh, Thank Heaven”...
