I've tried cajoling, collaborating, satire, and cynicism. I've tried reporting. I've tried fund raising for groups and causes. I've invented campaigns and I've followed others'. I've spent my own money and time and raised money from others. I've organized groups and coalitions and political campaigns, I've strategized, argued and nodded in agreement and opposition. I've attended public hearings, recruited citizens, businessmen, and the clergy. I've signed petitions and given speeches. I've attended meetings. I've tried being reasonable, excessive, calm and over-the-top. I've hired lawyers and consultants and lobbyists. In twenty years trying to change Florida's status quo hell-bent on wrecking Florida's quality of life and environment, I've tried everything. Maybe not everything. Here's something I haven't tried.
