Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Older drivers or I thought they had takeout

No details about this Juno Beach crash have been released yet. Want to bet the driver was 70 years old or older. Elderly drivers who don't have the wherewithal to drive any more are a big hazard in this state. Politicians pander to AARP lobby and won't do anything. A terrible tragedy will happen and then we'll get action. Unfortunately how many people will die before that.

A car crashed into the Juno Beach Cafe this morning, seriously injuring one man and causing five others to be evaluated at the scene.

A crowd of elderly patrons was having breakfast at the 20-year-old watering hole, at 13967 U.S. 1, when a woman driving a silver Mercedes jumped a parking stall cement barrier and plowed through a side window and wall at about 10 a.m., according to police.

Police are still investigating the accident and have not yet released any identities. The man injured in the accident was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center for treatment.

The car landed in the middle of the cafe knocking over tables and a barrier wall in front of the service counter. Police towed the car by 11 a.m. and impounded it as part of the investigation.
