Today at the Editor’s Glance:
All systems remain closed: Remember, curfew in effect from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Editorial notebook: Watching Gov. DeSantis through two press conferences from the state’s Emergency Management HQ today, next to Kevin Guthrie, Flagler’s one-time heroic emergency management director, I thought: if DeSantis was like that all the time, bearing down on governance, on what matters, on true leadership without ideological nonsense (and without insulting half the population half the time) he’d have us all eating out of his hand. We’d get somewhere. Hurricane Ian is showing him at his best. He even thanked the Biden administration, if while blanching a tinge. Pity how ideology poisons.
