True about family, they will probably try to sue Weston BSO + Weston Hills + City of Weston and everyone else for causing him to run into the canal. I wish an alligator had gotten rid of the body.

Rock Newman from ten years ago would have felt sorry for the guy ... yes I was bleeding heart liberal .... still a Democrat .. just have moved to the center as I have gotten older ... I share your feelings here Ruski

By the way in case it is eventually brought up ... would feel the same if the guy had been white , Hispanic , Asian , Aborigine or Martian !!

I'm doing good. I'm still living in Atlanta (and loving it). I spend more time travelling for work/business these days. I'm in S. Fla for a few days though. How are you doing on your end?

Good deal .... I was in Duluth a few weeks ago were we have offices ( Honeywell ) and it was soooo cold !!

I like Atlanta .... the only thing that I would not like is that it is land locked and I would miss the ocean and palm trees ... it is a world class city in many other respects though . Stay Safe

Soooo just because you found a body in a canal means the area isn't safe? What a bunch of crap.

I will repeat it again: if you are looking for a place where crime never happens, South Florida - a huge metropolitan area approaching 6 million residents from all over the world - is not for you. Try rural Nebraska instead

Weston is FAR safer than most places in South Florida...though I would never live there because of the ridiculous HOA restrictions that are the norm.

But maybe HOA restrictions are a contributing factor to the overall safety?
