Annual Manatee County fish toss not something to boast about

Well, every county has something to be boastful about. With Manatee, it’s the annual mullet toss.

Funny that the same channels that aired this story carried an advertisement for Children International, showing a skeletal, starving African child and begging for less than a dollar a day to save her. Wonder what that truck full of fish, or the proceeds from the sale of same, could have done for her?

Oh, who cares when you can pick up a few six-packs and have a good ol’ afternoon of fun? It’s those people that count, not PETA or a starving child.

Nice going, Terra Ceia.
