PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - When a plane flew overhead the other day hauling a banner, some folks figured it was another ad urging them to save Terri Schiavo, like the one Saturday that read: "Terri: I want to live." They had to look hard to see that it was just a promotion for a beach bar. This gritty strip of central Florida is used to living in obscurity, but its residents have become inundated by a national story that is everywhere - even in the air overhead. This time of year, people expect rowdy kids on spring break, snowbirds in slow-moving cars, tourists lost on their way to the Gulf - not protesters, media and a sad family story that has parked itself in their ZIP code.
