Sylvia Williams bemoans the "progress" in Destin and the supposed stampede of locals from Destin and dreaded "tourists" into Destin.  



Well, as a tourist who has spent a lot of money in Destin over the years, I don't like to feel that the locals see me as a second-class citizen invading their elitist playground. 



So keep your local elitist playground, Ms. Williams. There is plenty of pretty white sand and "progress" just down the road for me to enjoy!
