A Requiem for Florida, the Paradise That Should Never Have Been - POLITICO Magazine

—The first Americans to spend much time in South Florida were the U.S. Army men who chased the Seminole Indians around the peninsula in the 1830s. And they hated it. Today, their letters read like Yelp reviews of an arsenic café, denouncing the region as a “hideous,” “loathsome,” “diabolical,” “God-abandoned” mosquito refuge.


Well, this is very negative article. I visited Miami many years ago and thought overall it was a beautiful city, as was Coral Gables where I stayed. Way too hot and humid, but so is all of the East Coast.
