Listener comments!

  Tue. 4/24/12 6:11pm ADM:

If the grove-lords hear about this, prepare yourself for a life without orange juice.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:14pm Rand:

aggh, Plantation..!
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:16pm rroman:

I've lived in Plantation--manicured lawns everywhere. Peculiar, stifling place. Green lawns, monster trucks, and canals everywhere.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:17pm Rand:

Three years of high school for me. Hightailed it as soon as I could.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:19pm Rand:

First month after we moved there, there were burning crosses on the lawn of Broward Community College because the school closed for Rosh Hashanna.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:20pm Rand:

1975, btw
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:20pm Ike:

Still difficult to understand the caller -- he sounds murky -- but getting better.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:22pm rroman:

Brief for me, less than a year, but I still live in Miami...ugh. Didn't grow up, just a move made in poor judgment.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:23pm rroman:

[that should read: 'didn't grow up here'] Yeah, always thought the name "Plantation" was very unfortunate and weird [alluding to bad ol' days]. No one else here seems to think much of it.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:24pm cavorting with nudists:

Calling Fredericks...Calling Fredericks...
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:26pm Cut it right off.:

As you have said before. Nowhere else can the disparity of our class system be seen more shockingly. Palm Beach proudly features "haves" spitting on "have nots." Seen it! The substance abuse there is off the charts and your life cheaper than you might imagine.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:26pm Rand:

Historic first house in Plantation - built in 1947
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:28pm Jim B:

Limbaugh lives and loves there.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:29pm seang:

remember that serial killer in Gainesville?
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:32pm Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

Spent this past Winter in Florida, essentially as a homeless guy on a bike and only experienced kindness and and congeniality from law enforcement and Floridians. It helps to have a big US flag and a Support the Troops ribbon. Also don't be an ex-con scumbag. Being white is good too.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:33pm rroman:

South Florida is a strange bird...wow, 1947 first historic house. Today, it's sprawling, took a big hit with foreclosures, and, yeah, sharp class inequalities, among worst funded public universities in the U.S, so no wonder...
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:35pm Jeff:

The Sanford chief was also asking for a hefty severance package. I live and work construction in Key West. Love it! The keys are very different but the police situation is similar.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:41pm rroman:

Re: my comment above "1947 historic first house," I know that was in reference to Plantation, not all of South Florida!
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:42pm Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

Inland is the most interesting and beautiful part of Florida. Know Dunnelin and Dunnedin. Camped in sub tropical hammocks and in the Glades. The people are lovely but conservative for sure. Nothing menacing if you're not a creepy indigent Yankee looking for trouble. People from Jersey and New York are despised down there because of their rudeness and crassness.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:44pm rroman:

(In response to Rand's comment--sorry, multitasking...making a lot of typos) One positive thing about Florida, thrilling lightning storms...colossal dark clouds can take over the sky what seems like moments, I love it.
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:49pm seang:

Cameo Theatre in South Beach was cool
  Tue. 4/24/12 6:52pm Colin from Vancouver British Columbia Canada:

Yes, Native Floridians-you'll meet plenty when you get away from South Florida and the coasts. It's the old South for all that's good and bad about that. For sure, you don't want to black and and that Jersey or NY accent or plates will not win you friends. Old stock Floridians hate the snowbirds. I just love how they don't give a shit about hockey like me. Fuck the Canucks.
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:56am ADM:

Just remembering this alarmingly PRESCIENT show in light of recent news.
