Blink blink. I've said it before and I'll say it again. We need a Villages writer. I'd read all the words. Am I the only grouch who thinks Tracy from Lakeland shouldn't have been making a video of this manboy, and that she, too, could have gotten into a wreck, or caused one, due to her actions? The Tampa mom and stepdad accused today of terrible child neglect make me think of Lori and Tommy Allain. Will Florida become a medical tourism destination? Hmm. Spring break's been a boon.
