    Al Burt Strikes Again

    For many years, my Sunday morning pleasure was reading Al Burt's column in the Miami Herald. Many of them I clipped, and have referred back to them from time to time. Now I'm delighted to have some of the best of his tales available in book form. Not just because I enjoy them, but because I know they will be read for years to come by those who care about Florida--and Al Burt will teach them how to see things in a knowing and caring way. Bravo!
