St. Petersburg, err, Tampa Bay Times, Pravda Florida keeps falling. Unfortunately, our local rag, the Lakeland Ledger, has picked up many columnists columns from the TB Times.

Their most loved agenda item is how nobody in FL pays enough taxes.
I won’t even buy them for the coupons, so I am proud to say I am part of their problem.
