    Is this for real? A Catholic town in Florida, paid for by the rightwing lunatic owner of Domino's Pizza and endorsed by Governor Jeb Bush?

    I want to be the first one to open a porn shop and a gay bar there....

    In fairness to Domino's, the rightwing lunatic Tom Monaghan sold the company in 1998. So if you're going to boycott them, do so because their pizza sucks, not because of what this guy's doing.

    Sure is.

    Just saw a short exposé on Good Morning America. Mohaghan (sp?) and Marinella were being interviewed by Harry Smith.

    Mr. Marinella wanted to make it clear that "all are welcome in their new community based on traditional family values [bigot's Utopia] without restriction". I was screaming at the toob for Harry to say "how 'bout homosexuals?"

    Didn't happen.:rolleyes:

    Thanks mindseye.

    Good to know. I've long-maintained that Domino's has the world's worst pizza. Perhaps Mr. Marinella should have taken over. An Irishman in charge of good Pizza?

    Nah, doesn't really work.

    Will there be an abortion clinic annex to your complex as well?

    Ave Maria won't be the first narrowly-gated community, and it won't be the last. I grew up a few miles from Aero Plantation -- whose website hosts the whitest photo gallery you've ever seen. It is a 'fly-in' community for uber-rich families who own small aircraft. Houses have hangars instead of garages, and planes have the right-of-way on the streets.

    I'm just happy that Tom Monaghan isn't moving to my town. We already have one toxic waste dump.

    Although the thought of Inquisition Town in Florida is certainly amusing, it just strikes me as being just another planned community:

    http://www.avemaria.com/

    Which means, of course, that they will be able to achieve their goal of a traditional (i.e., segregated) community by pricing "undesirables" out of the market.

    I can only wonder how many new residents of Ave Marie will sign up as Gold Members of LPSG...

    Heath, I didn't know that you're from this part of NC. I know people who used to live at Aero Plantation, they loved the life there.

    You know some filthy rich people, then. Yeah -- I lived in that part of the country for almost ten years. I'll PM you with more details.
