This has been a great political conversation starter.

The two most powerful political figures in Central Florida snapping back and forth at each other in the media, then finally coming together and working out an agreement. This is great for Central Florida. If only Washington could work things out like this.

On Wednesday Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer met and hammered out an agreement on the aging Citrus Bowl renovations. Basically, the county will have the city’s back when it comes to borrowing the money to make these repairs a reality.

The Sentinel does a great job explaining it in plain English for the rest of us. Plus, we’re number 1 in political corruption. That’s right baby, we don’t do anything half speed in the “F.L.A”. Those stories lead your Thursday morning political headlines.
