Reality Check

Carl Hiassen of the Miami Herald looks at Florida’s new fraudster-in-chief: Scott wants to clean house? Lotsa luck

“Today is the end of politics as usual in Tallahassee.”

So said Gov.-elect Rick Scott in his victory speech, confirming a severe disconnection from reality.

He won’t change Tallahassee, but Tallahassee will change him.

Nobody who knows Florida believes that last Tuesday’s vote marks the end of politics as usual. It’s just another chapter of politics as always.

The Republicans have controlled the state Senate for 18 years, the state House for 14 years and the governor’s mansion for over a decade. The election changes absolutely nothing.

Tropical Storm Tomas – Day 10

Tropical Storm TomasPosition: 26.1N 69.1W [ 3 PM CST 2100 UTC].
Movement: North-Northeast [020°] near 3 mph [ 6 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 60 mph [95 kph].
Wind Gusts: 70 mph [115 kph].
Tropical Storm Wind Radius: 200 miles [320 km].
Minimum central pressure: 997 mb.

Currently about 500 miles [805 km] South-Southwest of Bermuda.

Tomas is unlikely to pose a threat to land again, but this storm has done a number of unlikely things, so I continue to watch it. As it stands now, this is the last official advisory on the storm.

Here’s the link for NOAA’s latest satellite images.
