Could it be divine intervention that's kept Florida safe from hurricanes since Gov. Charlie Crist took office?

Crist told a group of real estate agents Friday that he's had prayer notes placed in the Western Wall in Jerusalem each year and no major storms have hit Florida. Crist said he's not taking credit for the lack of storms in this hurricane-prone state:

"I give that to God. But it's nice."

Tampabay.com readers have posted their reactions, some bewildered, others ready to embrace any explanation for hurricanes steering clear of Florida in recent years. Which reader comment do you agree with?



It is good to know that we have a leader that believes in the power of prayer.
Don't knock it. Whatever works.
Thanks for jinxing us now.
Another good reason not to vote for him.
