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.

Florida the rules are different here Chapter LII

From the Bradenton Herald-

Sarasota, known for its art and culture, also has a very different kind of attraction: its landfill.

Free public tours of Sarasota County's landfill and its hazardous waste and recycling plants proved so popular earlier this year that 22 more tours have been planned in October, November and December, a county press release reports.

To accommodate demand, tours will be offered on Monday and Tuesday from 8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. on the following dates:

• Oct. 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31

• Nov. 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28

• Dec. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19

The tours depart from the Chemical Collection Center at 8750 Bee Ridge Road, Sarasota, and are limited to 18 people, ages 14 and older. Visitors must register in advance and will receive a confirmation letter with a tour itinerary. Each tour will visit the following three locations for 45 minutes each:

Visitors remain aboard an air-conditioned bus for the landfill tour, but may walk through the recycling plant and the hazardous chemical collection center.
As far as Sarasota goes, I thought it was known for its clowns. Sight-seeing tours of garbage dumps, just another reason to love Florida.
