Dayum! Wish I'd thought of that before leaving FL.
Oh yeah... everybody who lives north of Lake Okeechobee tends to look at that which lies south of the pond to be a foreign country of some sort... and never mind the guys in the Conch Republic or the Panhandle. Neither group seems to be willing to recognize the rest of the state as having anything to do with them!
And they're probably right about that, too...
I apologize for not making my meaning clear. I was referring to your earlier comment about federal involvement. But, curiously, Florida sounds a lot like Oregon when it comes to tribalism within the state. There are parts of this state that most of us refer to as "California" instead of Oregon.
Ironically, it sorta goes back to your op, but I never considered any of it as revenge so much as justice.
Sometimes, there's a bit of crossover effect in that sort of thing...
True dat! In this case justice was served twice; once when we recovered something that had been taken and again, a few years later, when the protagonist finally got his just deserts. He was shot dead while in the process of brutalizing yet another woman. Good riddance. (that's some of that there schadenfreude I believe)
Man, it's gotten so bad a guy needs a friggin' lawyer just to claim his prize.
We ain't seen the end of it yet, I don't think...
You remember the rant from The Devil's Advocate? At one point Pacino's lines went like this:
"Cause the law... puts us into everything. It's the ultimate backstage pass-- it's the new priesthood, baby! Did you know there are more students in law school then there are lawyers on the earth -we're comin out, guns blazin!"
Talked to the guys at VCJ last night... bad news: looks like your trip is off.
No room in the jail!
Trust me: you're glad you didn't show. There ain't nothin' around here but palmetto bugs and lunatics to begin with. And the only thing worse to eat than anything off Ernie's Dawg Truck© would be a Lucky Dog, which you get in New Orleans.
I've seen those kill a guy in just minutes...
You'll be hearing from my attorney!
