In reference to PETA’s complaint about the Terra Ceia mullet toss and various other problems some people tend to have with the culture and heritage of old Florida, they can get lost! When people relocate themselves to another part of the country, away from where they were raised, they knowingly give up their heritage.
Some folks may be unaware that there is history in Florida beyond Disney World and the condos on the beach. There is. It would be very much appreciated if these people left our heritage alone.
In a way, they are visitors in our land, and if our cultural functions and ways of life bother or offend them, they should simply not attend. Just who do these people think they are? They wouldn’t go to New York City and say no more tossing pizzas. Just because they gave up their heritage does not give them the right to ruin ours.
