: From Travel Advance, a tourism e newsletter:

: OOPS. Our report Thursday on National Tourism Week activities incorrectly quoted Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as saying that Florida's tourism industry is stranger than ever. While that may or may not be true, what the governor actually said was that the industry was "stronger" than ever.
