Gov. Dither and CFO Tut-tut



If you put a bunch of wilted, 3-week-old lettuce in one pile ...And Florida's governor, state chief financial officer and Legislature in another pile ...

The two piles would be just about equal in the leadership they are providing on this big change in car insurance that is happening on Oct. 1. The governor, Charlie Crist, is darned worried about it. But he respects the Legislature, you know, and doesn't want to seem too bossy. Good grief! Where is Jeb Bush when you need him?

More of Howard Troxler's column here. And check back here at noon for a live Troxblog chat.
