Sen. Jack Latvala said he was still waiting to hear alternatives to the 60,000-acre Everglades land buy -- after he'd just listened to a pretty darn good one from Sen. David Simmons, R-Longwood.
Early in my legal career I had the privilege to serve as a law clerk to U.S. District Court Judge Joe Eaton. Born in Monticello, Judge Eaton was a star athlete in college. He also played professional baseball. During WW II, Judge Eaton served as a flight commander in the Air Corps and flew bombing missions over German missile sites (D-Day was his 51st bombing mission).
A 90-day ban on travel from seven countries has sparked tremendous outpourings of “worry” or outright opposition by some 33 medical organizations.
On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., took to the Senate floor and explained the importance of maintaining and expanding U.S. sanctions on Russia until they withdraw from Crimea and respect the sovereignty of Ukraine. Rubio also highlighted the plight of Russian dissidents Vladimir Kara-Murza and Alexei Navalny.
As Rocket Raccoon from "Guardians of the Galaxy" described himself, "Ain't no thing like me, except me."
On Monday night, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., took to the Senate floor to highlight the plight of two lawyers imprisoned by the Chinese government for their human rights advocacy. Rubio’s speech was his second in 2017 as part of his #expressionNOToppression initiative, which highlights human rights abuses around the world.

There are many people to thank for the coming accession of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Donald Trump for winning the election. Hillary Clinton for losing it. Mitch McConnell for holding open the high court seat through 2016, resolute and immovable against furious (and hypocritical) opposition from Democrats and media. And, of course, Harry Reid.
