“The road to the White House goes through Florida, and the road to Florida goes through The Villages."

So says an old fart quoted in this article, anyway. Mrs. NBS and I always laugh at the commercials for The Villages. It makes Florida--God's waiting room--look like a hellhole.

Sorry I can't find the commercial where they're all tap dancing. That one's a classic.


How dare you make fun of America's Friendliest Hometown!!

That should be Florida's friendliest hometown. America's friendliest hometown, on the other hand, is Climax, Michigan. I know I've been there.

I don't know, Nonjuror. These days The Villages really could be friendlier than Climax. The last time I was in Florida, there were news reports about outbreaks of STDs in the retirement communities. All the men are hoped up on viagra, all the women are past their child bearing years, and as a result, all the oldsters are screwing like crazy and not using protection. With as many people as it has, The Villages could not only be America's Friendliest Hometown, it could be the most painful dischargeyist. Friendlier and dischargyer than Climax, MI anyway.

At that age, who gives a crank about STDs. Just have at it and damn the torpedos!
