The Teflon is starting to peel off Charlie Crist like a cheap frying pan. All of a sudden he isn't oozing charm on the big stage, getting away with empty good-guyisms, hail-fellow jokes and pie-in-the-sky promises. He's sweating.

WASHINGTON -- It is said that the problem with the younger generation -- any younger generation -- is that it has not read the minutes of the last meeting. Barack Obama, forever young, has convenient memory loss: It serves his ideology.

The latest mass-casualty shooting spree -- this one in Santa Barbara, Calif. -- has touched off the usual debate about how to put a stop to these hideous spasms of murder. These random massacres have become, as I wrote in a previous column, an American psychosis.

WASHINGTON -- Former President George W. Bush once said, rather proudly, that he didn't read newspapers. President Barack Obama, a confirmed newsie, has claimed to read the major papers, perhaps to learn what's going on in his own administration.

Really? Jumping all over Rick Scott for not debating Charlie Crist? Really?

The summer of 2013 was a watershed event for the Indian River Lagoon -- no pun intended. Its unique flora and fauna were decimated as the result of huge amounts of fresh water and pollutants entering the lagoon, causing lower salinity levels and massive algae blooms.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota says it has 10,000 lakes. The state also has, according to Anthony Sanders, "10,000 campaign finance laws." He exaggerates, but understandably. As an attorney for Minnesota's chapter of the Institute for Justice, a libertarian public-interest law firm, Sanders represents several Minnesotans whose First Amendment rights of free speech and association are burdened by an obviously arbitrary, notably complex and certainly unconstitutional restriction.

WASHINGTON -- Just when you thought American higher learning couldn't get any more ridiculous, along come demands for warning labels on provocative works of literature.
