I've read some hotels here are really hurting for reservations after the oil problem or threat to our beaches. Looks who's coming to town. ha

Some reader comments about Margaritaville coming to Pensacola Beach

Nibblin on sponge cake
Watchin the sun bake
ALL OF THOSE TOURISTS COVERED WITH OIL
Strummin my six-string
On my front porch swing
Smell those frozen shrimp from asia they're beginnin to boil

Wastin away again in margaritaville
Searching for an ocean with nothing in it but salt
Some people claim there's an obama to blame
But I know it's halliburton's fault

One day people will figure out a service economy equals service wages for most.

Both versions are kind of quirky but "all of those tourists covered with oil." "ha"

Reader comment: "I haven't ever been in a plane crash. God must care about me even more!" ha

On a lesser scale, I remember talking to a neighbor after a hurricane and she said the Lord was watching out for her house while some of the other houses in the neighborhood were badly damaged. It's kind of the same story, the proclamation that the laws of nature were suspended just for her. Yawn.

"That seems perfectly appropriate to me, since the whole point of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is to make the point--via free speech--that if communities are going to give credence to one theory of the origins of life in their schools, then they also have to give credence to others."
