Thank you for your wonderful response to my Commentary. Readership has grown nicely and I especially appreciate your kind and not so kind feedback. You may not know that this is actually my third Blog, which were started as promotions for my books.
Additionally, I was asked over 4 years ago to write a column for the Tallahassee Democrat drawn from my book, The Golden Years...The Florida Legislature, '70's and '80's. Reflections on Campaigns and Service. It was called Quorum Call and it was a profile of the legislators, staff, lobbyists and press that made that Era so special. I also posted Quorum Call on Face Book which is now running reprints.
Due to repeated requests, I thought I would re-run the Quorum Calls, without any particular order. I will continue to opine on the political issues of the day, especially in Florida. Let me know if you like this new addition to this Commentary.
This is the very first Quorum Call on one my favorite legislators with which I was first elected to the House in 1974, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee Herb Morgan (D., Tallahassee)
