The CSX deal absorbed a giant defeat on the floor of the Florida Senate this evening. See story here. How big? Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer declared: “The forces of evil have won.”
Now, this isn’t done. There’s one more day. Anything can happen. But just think about that line from Dyer for a second. “The forces of evil.” Really? Dude, it’s single crappy rail line made possible by a massive, destructive corporate giveaway to CSX that would harm everybody else. We are not talking about waterboarding here. Get a grip.
