Not Disney

[For Mark Lane.]

Yesterday's New York Times had this nice piece on contemporary parts of Florida, particularly Lake County and Mt. Dora, that resemble what Florida was like before the Disney invasion. It's a nice piece.

I went to prep school in the 8th and 9th grades near Mt. Dora (Florida Central Academy, not Howey), so I know the area the writer writes of fairly well. Mt. Dora is neat, so I hope she hasn't jinxed it by telling the whole world about it!
