Bush to Invade Pensacola Beach - Please!

In the reduced world of the Pensacola News Journal, as revealed on-line today, Pensacola Beach has its own mayor. Would that this were so.

In point of fact, Pensacola Beach residents have no vote on any mayor. We are ruled by distant county commissioners and their five political appointees, most of whom don't live on the beach and several of whom openly despise beach residents as a class.

All past efforts to bring true democracy to Pensacola Beach by letting it have self-rule through incorporating as a free-standing, democratically-run municipality have been undercut and turned back by hostile county commissioners in league with greedy developers.

Can we please get George Bush to invade Pensacola Beach and bring us democracy before he leaves office?
