What do you do after you quit Enterprise Florida? Enjoy a glass of red wine, of course!

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

On Monday, Chris Hart IV abruptly resigned as Enterprise Florida CEO.
Hart cited an ongoing conflict with Gov. Rick Scott over the future of the outfit responsible for recruiting companies to the state.

So how did Hart end such a tumultuous day?
With a glass of red wine, of course.
The former legislator posted to Facebook late Monday a simple, albeit telling photograph from, presumably, his back yard.  A glass of

Jimmy Kimmel Mixes Humor, Politics at 89th Oscars

Jimmy Kimmel’s 3 1/2-hour search to find the right tone for an Academy Awards broadcast that uneasily mixed humor and politics ended appropriately: in mass confusion.

“I knew I would screw this show up,” Kimmel joked.
