The Jacksonville Landing hosts more than 600 events each year including Florida/Georgia Weekend Celebrations, the city’s annual Christmas Tree lighting, in addition to New Year’s Eve and July 4th celebrations.

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, however, had the best question of the day: “So will Democrats be forced to disavow this crazed killer by the media?”
