SUNSHINE. STATE. The state of Florida is known internationally for being a good
place to go for rest and relaxation. Over the years, I have visited the Sunshine
State dozens of times either on vacation or in connection with my job with the
federal government. In fact, for a brief time in my youth, I lived in Jacksonville with
my family for a few months. I have been to all of the state's major cities and seen
most of its big attractions. For a long time, I considered Florida my second home
state.

paradise and regional backwater, Beattie's idea was that Queensland would
become a Biotechnology Valley supported by the country's best education
system. His successor as premier ...

Newsweek magazine ran a “My Turn” essay in 1986 by Stuart Bykofsky, a writer
for the Philadelphia Inquirer, entitled “No heart for the homeless.” One
memorable passage in the essay referred to the homeless as “the drunk, the
addicted, and the just plain shiftless.” Certainly, the alcohol-impaired “Skid Row

Florida Power is scrapping two old oil fired generating stations for CCGT
complexes fed by new natural gas pipelines, and eventually also adding two new
nuclear plants. Both technologies are cheaper by half for the Sunshine State than
solar. The Golden State has chosen to waste gold and be at least twice as
expensive, while foolishly also putting its grid reliability at risk (essay California
Dreaming). Froma gridperspective, without multiple unanticipated technology
breakthroughs, ...
