What goes down . . .

THIS year being the fifth anniversary of the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, it may be time to bring up a theory about the eruption which is going the rounds down here in Florida and which seems to have been suppressed until now. It cannot likely be proved one way or the other whether any media plot is involved, but very few people throughout the United States realized what was happening in Florida on the East Coast while Mt. St. Helens was erupting on the West Coast.

Florida was getting sucked under, that's what was happening.

While Mt. St. Helens was blowing stuff into the air out West, in Florida everything was sliding down into sinkholes. Not many people down at the town tennis courts were affected by this at the time, but one can't help wondering.

All that stuff Mt. St. Helens blew into the air must have come from somewhere.

I don't know too much about the geological theories involved here, but a lot of Florida people out in the middle of the state feel that the whole world might be connected up somewhere underneath.

The issue is coming up anew.

There has been speculation that Mt. St. Helens is going to erupt again, though this time in a much tamer fashion. As a result a lot of scientific people, mostly with whiskers, are traveling to Washington State to see what's going up.

Not one, that I am aware of, is coming to Florida to see what's going down! That's the pressure of mass opinion for you.

But some Florida farmers I know of are keeping a lonely watch out on the back pastures. Some kind of record should be kept. These people feel they would know for sure if a 1972 Olds that slid into a sinkhole somewhere around Orlando five years ago were to come smoking down a mountainside in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest out in the state of Washington.

I think a class-action suit in the Supreme Court is unlikely. I'm just bringing it up for consideration.
