|SOMETHING SURPRISING||When I was a kid, I was obsessed with bats — you know, the winged mammal kind. Today, I have about 10 bat boxes on my farm that house thousands of free-tailed bats.|
|WOULD CHANGE about Florida||Get a decent official state song; maybe something from Tom Petty. Lose all the billboards. Allow ATVs on all public roads except interstates. Decriminalize recreational marijuana use.|
