Do You Know Bill Maxwell? If You Don't, You Should!
We are very fortunate that our local paper, The Daily Commercial, runs his column.
Bill is a Native Floridian, a passionate man and most of the time, dead on in his editorials.
But this week, he has made comments that were a little unexpected.
He wrote about the beautiful wild places and wild creatures of our state and surprise, he loves them enough to lay it all out there in his column.
Maxwell writes for the St. Pete Times and running this story in a state, where hunters rule and their lobbyists take no prisoners, took no small amount of courage.
Bill's story is sure to invoke severe criticism from those who fiercely defend their right to "kill at will" and blast any who dare to stand against them.
Bless you Bill, you are one of the few writers here who is willing to take a stand for protecting those who have no voice:
our wild things, our wild places, our Wild Florida.
And, for those who don't like it, they can, well you know.......
