Refugees from BP's spill headed to FLorida

It looks like there are thousands of refugees headed to Florida from BP's oil spill.

Turtles. See below.

I have an inspiration.

What about shrimp boats?

St. Augustine was once a shrimp boat capital. There are few shrimp boats here.

We have the processing facilities (along Riberia Street).

We have the docks (the abandoned Sebastian Inner Harbor project site has new docks that are unused).

Florida enacted a constitutional amendment in 2008 encouraging working waterfronts/

Shrimpers could move here, with their families, pending cleanup.

Tourists could enjoy the working waterfront.

Family businesses and a way of life could be preserved.

Our economy would be boosted.

What do you reckon?
