I came home after a long day at work to find a solicitation stuffed between the pickets of the front gate of my Key West home.  The headline, in bold, blue letters read “Got Iguanas?” How could you not pause and reflect upon a statement like that?  Iguanas can be a problem.  They are, fundamentally, disgusting in a primal sort of way.  Reptiles and mammals just weren’t meant to like each other.  Iguanas grow very large, eat your herbs and hibiscus and make a huge mess in your pool.   My reaction that day, however, was one of smug satisfaction.  In this chaotic world in which we live, I found a wonderful island where the issue of the day is “Got Iguanas?” How bad can life be?
