A lot of talk about Blue Angel Weekend – if the crowds are too large, it could be a disaster. Only 30K showed up last year and everything went smooth. No way Pensacola Beach can handle 100,000 people.

Larry Johnson is getting tons of phone calls asking him to run against Pensacola City Councilman Marty Donovan now that Rhette Anderson has dropped out. Donovan defeated Johnson last time, but Larry has maintained high positive profile since then. He would give Donovan a race.
