Buffett performs at Everglades Action Day rally

From the Miami Herald: “Jimmy Buffett rallies parrotheads for U.S. Sugar land purchase

With musician Jimmy Buffett singing about “changes in latitudes” Tuesday outside Florida’s Capitol, proponents of buying Everglades land from U.S. Sugar Corp. hope in the next few weeks to change the attitudes of lawmakers opposed to the deal.

Introduced by Miami Herald columnist and novelist Carl Hiaasen, Buffett played a 25-minute mid-day acoustic set as part of an Everglades Day rally that attracted more than 500 people to the Capitol courtyard.

“What would Skink do?” Buffett asked the crowd in reference to the fictional former Florida Gov. Clinton Tyree, who appears as a wild hermit known as Skink in a number Hiaasen’s novels.

“He’d do the right thing,” Buffett answered his own question. “Governor. Legislature. Do the right thing. … We want to preserve our water. We want to save our swamp. And we want to have a future for our children in Florida.”

A video is available on Youtube

Songs that Buffett played: “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”, “Migration”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, “Growing Older But Not Up”, “Floridays”, and “Margaritaville”
