Payback to the Endowment?

Seems the governor of Florida has agreed to repay the Lawton Chiles Endowment after raiding it...according to the Bradenton Herald.

For mental and verbal exercise I'm sketching a short play which, of course, is political in subject. A lot of the success of this Chiles project depends on good, snappy dialogue. Fictional dialogue done well helps brainstorm good arrangement of nonfictional dialogue. Maybe it was Cal Ripken Jr. who said that perfect practice makes perfect. This is practice, regardless.

Join the Petition to Protect Florida's Children

Click HERE to protect the Lawton Chiles Endowment for Florida's children.

Demand that Florida's current political leadership show vision and wisdom and reject short-sighted budget gimmickry. Ask that they build what Governor Chiles called a "constituency for children."

Once you've signed the petition, ask three friends to answer the call!
