MEANWHILE, WITH EYES ON 2012...:

Florida Teams Up With Brazil For Alternative Fuel (CBS4, 12/18/06)

In one of his last initiatives as governor, Jeb Bush on Monday announced the creation of the Interamerican Ethanol Commission to promote the use of the alternative fuel throughout the Americas and slowly wean the region off gasoline.

Bush said his support for ethanol was shaped by watching the suffering of Floridians through eight hurricanes in the last two years and the resulting damage caused by a temporary loss of fuel supply.

How does switching to ethanol change the problems of distribution during an emergency? Just asking.

Actually Jeb did a great job getting supplies in. There were dozens if not hundreds of trucks at the Georgia border waiting for the okay to move south. One afternoon we saw a convey of dozens of gas trucks, FPL trucks and tree trimmings trucks driving south on I 95 to the cheers of fellow motorists.

Jeb will be missed. Crist is an idiot.
