  1. Hi Gary …. If you use “What fresh hell is this?” , please attribute the quote to the creator , Dorothy Parker . It’s too easy to not attribute quotes .

  2. South Beach is expensive enough that it is sort of amusing that the governing types there want to try to further limit spring break traffic and all the money it brings in to the area.

    Crowds bring in money and some problems. Sort of like with the Super Bowl in Vegas where the market for illicit sexual services was as could be expected.

  3. That’s awesome with the kid being quietly transported and really seems to enjoy the ride.

    @Alert – my second favorite Parker quote: Of course I talk to myself. I like a good speaker, and I appreciate an intelligent audience.

  4. @Christian … Excellent ! My favourite Round Table quote ( not by Parker ) : Woollcott boasted that he has just published a book , destined to be a rare first edition , and he held it up . Someone said perhaps it will be a rare first edition because perhaps it will never go into a second edition .

  5. @GU

    The problem with Spring break today is the demographics are different from spring break 20-25 years ago. It’s not really about having fun anymore but about violent crime and disruption. It’s gotten really bad. Of course they can’t admit it so they make these onerous rules.
