Harbor Beach Currently Rich in Metaphors
The Oasis of the Seas, the world's biggest cruise ship, which has just docked in Port Everglades.

A metaphor of a different of age, construction of the Oasis of the Seas began during a time in American history when it was still a good idea to flip Florida properties and take out a mortgage you couldn't afford and invest with that guy whose record was so spectacular, the returns seemed (say it with me now) too good to be true. But for the Oasis of the Seas to be metaphorically fitting for Harbor Beach resident Scott Rothstein, it would need to be split in half and belching black smoke. Let's hope that doesn't happen.
Currently, Harbor Beach is swarming with gawkers, but most of them appear to be more interested in the big ship than the big shit who lives nearby -- maybe because there's a gated interest to the tony neighborhood Rothstein called home.
