“Tax-free holiday for hurricane supplies. Are tequila, rum and limes considered hurricane supplies?” “School District: It’s a year out from the superintendent leaving. Let’s start a national search so we have an orderly transition with plenty of time.” “Rotting seagrass is normal, it stabilizes sand, enriches the soil for mangroves and builds the island. The[…]

“Sign suggestion: ‘So far, 10,443 bicyclists did not come to a complete stop this year.’” “Calling a couple ‘folks’ instead of ‘guys’ or ‘girls’ will not solve the problem.What if, in addition to being non-specific sexually, they are also non-specific species-wise?” “By all means call all your best friends ‘sweetheart’ and respond accordingly among yourselves.[…]

“We have volunteers painting street signs and cleaning up trash on the beaches so how about have volunteers policing bicyclists? They could give out citations to anyone violating traffic laws.

“Aaack! Don’t blame ‘Hon’ and ‘Dearie’ on Southerners who pride themselves on politeness above all things. Wouldn’t do that to a stranger, and no Southerner would address one of their elders in such a fashion. Not ever. Close relatives are ‘ma’am’ and ‘sir.’ Other people they know are ‘Miss X’ as opposed to first names.”[…]
