Florida

  • A young city, Miami lacks the history, the roots, and the traditions of other major metropolitan areas. Everybody here is from someplace else.

  • [On Miami:] ... in this city ... to many motorists a stop sign means time to reload.

  • It is the norm for Miami politicians, exposed, indicted, even convicted, to be overwhelmingly reelected by voters who are apparently brain dead or, in some cases, literally dead, as recent voter fraud investigations revealed.

  • Here in Florida the seasons move in and out like nuns in soft clothing, making no rustle in their passing.

  • Perhaps the spirit of the Everglades was most evident in the unseen, the hidden, the implied.

  • It seemed to Rosa Lublin that the whole peninsula of Florida was weighted down with regret. Everyone had left behind a real life.
