Sent in by our friend Corey K, and with apologies to the good people of the Sunshine State. Would that this were the only such email/comment we've received along these lines of late since beginning our reporting on the Clint Curtis/Tom Feeney "Vote-Rigging" scandal. Unfortunately, it's just one of many similar...

Just a little memory I thought you'd appreciate...

Sometime in the early to mid 1980s, I'm at DisneyWorld in Orlando with my family. We're about to get on the jungle ride.

My dad is chatting with the boat's "tour guide" as we're boarding, and in the course of the brief conversation my dad says something along the lines of, "Why not? It's a free country."

And the jungle boat tour guide chuckles and says, "Ah... you must be from out of state!"
