S-Lake Wales?

sugarcaneTake a look at the lead paragraph in the Orlando Sentinel’s latest story on Polk County’s favorite son, J. D. Alexander.

Sen. J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales, said Monday he’s talked to Gov. Charlie Crist in recent weeks about keeping the majority of U.S. Sugar Corp.’s agricultural lands in the sugar-growing business after the state finalizes its $1.75 billion buy-out of the company.

Wait? Does he mean he wants the state in the sugar-growing business?

It sounds crazy

A state run business? That’s down right French. Do you think there is a Floridians for Socialist Values mailing on the way?
