A long overdue update

This blog is the prior version of The Sunshine Empire. This blog primarily concerns progressive political commentary, social satire, the occasional rant, and sports commentary. I had intended to write on local Jacksonville and Florida matters on this space, but the national Presidential election had pre-occupied me.

Florida though is again in the news due to the fight over the primary re-do. I was watching CNN this morning and Florida Representative Kendrick Meek was arguing that the people of Florida made their voices heard, which is an absurd claim. With nobody campaigning in the state it can hardly be viewed as fair. Locally the city of Jacksonville seems to be falling apart, and we'll see more as Charlie Crist's foolhardy plan to placate South Floridians turns northern Florida into Youngstown Ohio. No taxes will mean less police. Great.

The Jaguars however have made the moves they needed to in order to succeed past the second round of the playoffs this coming year. But the Titans improved as well. Maybe we'll see a repeat of the glory days of the late '90's. But this time the Jags better win.
