Best we can tell, Gov. Rick Scott hasn't had a "Let's Get to Work Day" since January. Back in 2011, the governor announced that he was mimicking Gov. Bob Graham's work days as a way to travel the state, meet people, learn what they do and -- this is us talking -- get some easy, noncontroversial publicity.

But those work days seem to have stopped after his January visit to Goya Foods, Scott's 15th work day.

Graham reportedly totaled 408 work days.
