John Romano column: Did you know Jennifer Carroll did such a 'fantastic job'?



Times columnist John Romano riffs on the quote from former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll in the New York Times:

"I believe I did a fantastic job.''

Nope, can't say that I saw that one coming.

I mean, it's not a hard and fast rule, but when "Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation'' and "resignation'' are in the same sentence, the term "fantastic'' is typically not the first description that comes to mind.

Of course, I could be misreading the situation. It's entirely possible that Carroll did a fantastic job the past two-plus years, and I haven't paid close enough attention.

Just to be sure, I searched newspaper headlines to find blockbuster accomplishments I might have missed during Carroll's tenure.
