Special session could start next week

Word is that legislative leaders and Gov. Charlie Crist are close to a deal on Tri-Rail, SunRail and high-speed rail, and could call a special session as early as next week.

Crist said he preferred the week of Dec. 7, but the Legislature might meet before then to avoid running into Hannukah.

Expect Sen. Paula Dockery of Lakeland -- who is trying to raise her statewide profile as she runs for governor -- to show her usual determination to kill Central Florida's SunRail, saying it's a bad deal for taxpayers.

Here's a plan: to avoid another Scott Rothstein rip-off of Floridians, the Legislature should immediately pass legislation to place regulation of attorneys under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Florida Department of Professional Regulation instead of the self regulating Florida Bar.

Rothstein's victims should never forget that Rothstein served as vice chairman of the Florida Bar Grievance committee during his crime-spree.

And he did it all with Evan Jenne on the payroll. What a farce? Everything that is Evan Jenne and Judy Stern disgusts me. They both make me wanna throw up in my mouth.
