20 Days Away: St. Augustine's 450th Anniversary on September 8, 2015

We've got a lot to celebrate, and a lot to regret. America's first European-founded City. Oldest permanent settlement. Overcame European religions wars on our shores genocide, slavery, segregation, racism, pollution, hurricanes, developers, corruption, good-ole-boys, oppression?
Or not?
One of the most liberal places in North Florida, but still contending with corruption, still smeared, teared and bleared with developer-driven antics, like the proposed conversion of the DOW MUSEUM OF HISTORIC HOMES into a $500/night hotel, keeping average Americans out of the property our State of Florida spent $2.1 million rehabilitating.
"Celebrate 450!"?
You tell me.
