    about their beaches.  One thing is for sure, no matter what FL does to inconvenience Canadian tourists, they and their money are more than welcome in other venues

      Is your cruise ship dead in the water in the Gulf? Are you sleeping on a freezing deck because your vacation wonderland is more like the Superdome after Katrina?

      Well, just limp on in to the port of Mobile, where we have toilets that work and cheese sandwiches that won't give you salmonella.

      We even have lawyers standing by to help you sue the shit out of Carnival.

      Our newly minted all-Republican all the time state government is too busy denying Medicaid to thousands of poor people to worry about a handful of Canadian tourists on our (quite lovely, btw) beaches.

      See, the Canadian tourists, being white and all, can have whatever they want. Undocumented Mexican construction workers and house cleaners who live and work here, however, are not issued drivers licenses in our state. Because, you know, they're brown and all.

      “Better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference.” -- FDR, 1936
