Alysa and I were lucky enough to travel to Florida over the holiday break, and our favorite pastime is buying books, so of course I picked one up while in Florida. We came across a book of all inaugural speeches of all the Florida governors. As you can imagine, it is not the most exhiliarting of books, but it is interesting to see over time what was interesting to what Governors and the topics that were importants through decades and decades, such as education. Also, I decided to read this book backwards, and read the most recent inaugural address first, which happens to be Jeb Bush's 2003 inaugural. If you are a politico, I would highly recommend this book.
