Charlie Crist Single Handedly Saves Florida From Hurricanes Through Prayer

You know why we haven't had a major hurricane in quite some time? Because Gov. Charlie Crist gets down on his knees.

Crist left a payer note on the Western Wall in Jerusalem in 2007 while on a trade mission that read, "Dear God, please protect our Florida from storms and other difficulties. Charlie." 

Last year, he left the note-leaving duties to Democratic State Sen. Nan Rich (because apparently Florida's new "a whim and a prayer" hurricane prevention program has support across the aisle). This year he gave the note to a friend. 

It seems, except for some severe flooding caused by last year's Tropical Storm Fay, Crist might actually be on to something here.
