Mark Twain, author and humorist On a sunny Saturday afternoon in Silicon Valley, two proud fathers stood on the sidelines of a soccerfield. They were watching their young daughters play together, and it was only a matter of time beforethey struck up a conversation about work. The taller of the two men was Danny Shader, a serialentrepreneur who had spent time at Netscape, Motorola, and Amazon. Intense, dark-haired, andcapable of talking about business forever, Shader was in his late thirties by the time he launched hisfirst company, and he liked to call himself the old man of the Internet.
The strategy-shifting dynamics are coming into play in states such as Florida, where Gov. Rick Scott faces a tough re-election challenge from Charlie Crist.
I always give the Glades an A. The national media is focused on the Senate races.
Best guess, based on numerous surveys, is Senate Democrats will lose their majority. With a slim Republican Senate majority, Congress will not be able to do much to break the current gridlock. With no Senate races or national majorities at risk from Florida voters, we have not been getting national media attention.
Our state governors race was blown into national coverage by a fan. David Dunn-Rankin, writing in this space last Saturday, had the clearest story on the brouhaha that I have read.
There are serious issues on the back of my mail-in ballot. We can change the Florida constitution with any of three amendments. Number one and two are citizen initiatives. Number three is proposed by the Legislature. I am going to vote yes for one and two and vote no on number three, the Legislatures proposal.
After 80 years in Florida watching the changes that go with a population growing from 2 to 20 million, Amendment 1 is an easy yes. Since rst creating conservation funds, the state has gone a long way on preser vation. Amendment 1 locks in a funding source to preserve and add to the states land conservation and water without creating any new or added taxes.
Under Amendment 1, funds can also be used to manage, restore and improve conservation lands such as forests and wetlands to help restore water resources.
The water and land conservation dollars are part of a broad conservation mandate that includes protecting current and future drinking water sources. Much of the conservation program was starved during the recession.
State budget-cutting slashed these funds in favor of other expenditures.
This amendment commits a third of the excise tax on documents to Floridas Land Acquisition and Trust Fund. Once in the Constitution, only by reducing all document excise taxes could the Legislature reduce the state commitment to conservation."Based on Tim Burtons Edward scissor hands..

And is our obsession with inflation well, a little over-inflated? John Sweeney has followed the case closely for Newsnight. He has the latest developments for us tonight.
