More Americans would go to the polls if somebody would just entertain them when they get there. Sad, but apparently true. There's research to prove it. Throw a parade, a picnic, a barbecue, a block party in enough cities and Florida polling places could lure 4 percent of the otherwise lazy and disengaged.

When the Democratic Progressive Caucus issued its endorsements this week, one prominent name was omitted: Janet Cruz.
Donald Trump may be remembered as the most honest president in modern American history.
With the rapid development of Hurricane Michael in the Gulf of Mexico, most Floridians saw an imminent life-and-death threat to the panhandle and Big Bend region of their state. 
Public power utilities in the Florida panhandle are bracing for the impacts of Hurricane Michael, which will make landfall sometime Wednesday afternoon as a potential Category 3 hurricane. Currently, the Florida public power utilities of Tallahassee, Havana, Chattahoochee, Quincy and Blountstown are all in the potential impact zone.
As Florida braces for a direct hit from a powerful hurricane, we must be on the lookout for more than just the approaching storm. Anyone who has suffered damage to his or her property can become the target of unscrupulous scams involving dishonest contractors and their dodgy trial lawyer buddies. And we thought hurricanes were the destructive force!

You wait. Michael will go down as the most political hurricane in Florida history.
The descent of American capitalism into a racket is being greased by professed capitalists in government, in collaboration with professed capitalists in what is called, with decreasing accuracy, the private sector. This is occurring under the auspices of Republicans, and while many Democrats are arguing, with some accuracy but more incoherence, this: The government has become a servant of grasping private interests -- and should be much bigger and more interventionist.
Ron DeSantis
It has been a tougher-than-expected start to the general election campaign for gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis. Since stumbling out of the gate following his solid primary win, the polls have shown his opponent, Andrew Gillum, consistently leading, albeit usually within the margin of error. With a month to go before the election, that is a bridgeable gap, and one DeSantis is now working to cover.
News on most days comes straight out of President Trump's smartphone. Everything else is scraps.
