Cracker Barrel: Once a-Ponce a time

Email

Punta Gorda, Florida — Ten days ago this quiet town on the western coast of Florida found itself invaded by a band of modern-day conquistadors, many of them in battle dress with plumed helmets, swords, ornately brocaded tops and black pants or tights.

Never mind that several of the invaders were also wearing sunglasses and some sported bristly white beards. They weren’t acting out some light-hearted piece of modern theater.
