The writer seems to have an interesting of where 'South Florida' is. The Villages are in north central Florida - and probably planning to occupy all of it in the next decade or so.

Jobs for out of work pilots? Someone has to operate them, no?

What is going to happen is drunken (as in most) Villagers will see them, swerve their golf carts into other object and the local Lawyers will go ape shit after whoever causes the "distraction". I have the unfortunate reality that I am in The Villages not too infrequently, the rumors (STD's and whatnot) are all true.

I live in The Villages and there are those assholes here that will steal those packages if they have the opportunity.

Probably those from NY. The fact is, in TV there is a MASSIVE population of people who have outlived their middle-class money. Mostly, it is self-important idiots who really are not half as important as they claim they are, or ever were. I have noticed that the people in the "Historic" area are far easier to be around than those closer to LSL and south. Well, then there is Fenney.
