AG Makes Game, Misses Cabinet



Attorney General Bill McCollum watched the Gators win the NCAA championship live in Atlanta but he didn't make a 9 a.m. Cabinet meeting that started less than 10 hours later. McCollum said he knew he probably wouldn't make it back in time for Cabinet, but that he was "also aware that the Cabinet agenda was not very serious" compared with past meetings. (It was among of the quickest Cabinet meetings this year.)

McCollum, a doube gator who got his bachelor's and law degree at UF, made the 11 a.m. forum on global warming, and he asked lots of questions.

Gov. Charlie Crist was also at the game and at Cabinet.


Buzz was incorrect: Crist did not take the state plane. He flew on a private plane with Bill Belichick, coach of the New England Patriots.
