Palm Beach has not only luxurious homes and an abundance of Bentleys, it has a lovely public beach. Our state is quite diverse; we have scenes like the one above, also miles of pastureland with cattle, citrus groves, farmland, swamps, lakes, the Everglades, and theme parks. We have Carl Hiassen, who writes books about outlandish Florida characters. They are fiction, but I understand that his ideas come from the news. We are the state of mermaids, manatees, and hanging chads.
