“I used to be funny for money,” says Pete O'Shea, founder of Humor 2 Outreach. “Now, I'm laughing for the Lord.”
So it is no secret things are bad. How bad was the news this week contained in a report of Tampa’s economic ranking with six Southern cities. The semi-annual report was released this week by the Tampa Bay Partnership and it ranked the Tampa Bay area dead last against five other metro areas: Atlanta, Dallas, Jacksonville, Charlotte and Raleigh\Durham.
The numbers are based on a number of indicators including employment, home affordability and housing permit growth.
Not included in the numbers are a lack of political leadership and continued low salaries and a floundering public school system.

Steve, I appreciated your printing the comments of Sheriff David Gee in your Sunday column on “Facing a Place…”. He’s quoted as saying “I don’t think the public realizes sometimes how much we are on the edge; how close we come sometimes to anarchy. I don’t think they realize how dangerous society has become.” I couldn’t help but remember your collegue Daniel Ruth’s comments a few weeks back when he scoffed at the audacity of even thinking about Intelligent Design being taught in schools. The conditions Sheriff Gee talks about are result of attempting to throw God out of everything in life. Scripture says who will have the last laugh, and it won’t be man.
