Palm Beach Sunrise

This is what sunrise looks like around where I live.

It isn’t difficult — as Texas is gripped by a deadly Feb snowmaggedon — to figure out why boomers are flocking to Florida, or why I moved down here full-time 20 yeas ago, when I was still in my 40s, and housing was dirt cheap.

Hard to beat the view in beaches that are this empty, relative to, say, Europe, during the height of the tourist season, in a place where everyone speaks English and you don’t have to worry about the dollar tanking.

It helps assuage the national tragedy of a certain talk radio host joining the choir invisible this week.
