You'd abandon Florida for that? You do know the weather sucks here, right?

I don't believe all of the Board Members are from Ohio. In fact, I don't think many of them are. I'm not going to move back there for the gig. But, I'd fly up and back for monthly board meetings. And, of course, offer them a place to meet in South Florida during the winter months!

What is wrong with South Beach? I guess if you don't like gorgeous, half nude bodies, it isn't the place to be.

Gorgeous half nude bodies? We got that. There's a polar-bear plunge every year.
