That is crazy. But its not like it matter economically fo rthe people on the Lake. They all look rich enough to be able to repair damage and the drop in property value looks like it won't hurt them.

Look rich? the daughter of the founder of Publix lives there, and let me tell you, Publix is a pretty big deal down there in the sunshine state. It's on par with Kroger and Wegman's, only they're literally everwhere.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. So it's ok because they're rich? If this happened to middle-class or poor people would it matter more?

If they had to foot the bill for the repairs, maybe. I think the point is that no one's crying over the homeowners association having to pay to fix the lake because, well, it's their damn lake.

Now the question is is it a natural lake or man made?

Yeah, it's a natural lake.

I don't get how people can discredit the magnitude of this disaster as it pertains to these residents, simply because they may be wealthy. Most wealthy people are that way because they worked their asses off to get that way. Just as a middle-class person may have worked very hard to not be considered poor, so a man/woman of wealth worked hard for what they have (usually).

Dude, it said right in the article that one of the residents was the DAUGHTER of the founder of Publix; oh, lucky her, her daddy's rich and so is she. Believe it or not, that's how an awful lot of people end up wealthy. I understand many people work their asses off, but if you must live on lake-front property covered in sink holes, this is the risk you take; just as if you decide to live in a trailer park in the middle of Kansas. Buyer beware.

One bad apple, Copper? If I was fortunate enough to inherit a fortune, I certainly wouldn't feel bad about it, or guilty. If you're jealous for some reason, fine, but this is tragic for anyone, no matter their income. Sinkholes happen in Florida, that's established, but this one is much greater than usual. I'm not going to feel worse for a family who lost a pinto than a family who lost a Beamer.
