Life in Florida VII

Mostly insane news from around the Sunshine State. Does too much sun exposure cause people’s brains to fry down here?

A picture is worth a thousand words? We’ll start off with the Florida photo of the week. A garbage truck totals a Florida home.Garbage.jpg

Out with the trash- A woman from Jamaica gives birth and then puts her child in a garbage bag. The baby will be fine, the mother is likely to be deported.

Was it Vanilla or Chocolate?- Sarasota drug bust goes wrong when dealer goes back to a McDonald’s counter to get his milkshake. Police then storm into the fast food restaurant.

I spoke too soon. Palm Beach County elections supervisor apologizes for the undercounting of votes in a recent election. Arthur Anderson can’t competently handle one small special election limited to one city, how can he supervise the whole county?(Only reason Anderson isn’t getting the Knucklehead, is because is because he has three already. The man defines inept.)

The report of my death was an exaggeration. South Florida blogger posts again less than three weeks after saying they were quitting.

Attention to detail- Miami Beach hotel changes the way their toilet paper is folded.

Sad news- Four-year-old dies in a Tallahassee daycare fire. The building was evacuated, but Grace Chen was accidentally left behind. Firefighters went back in but the child died less than two hours later. Say a prayer for the Chen family, there is nothing worse for a parent than to lose a child. I know this from personal experience. It has been reported that Grace’s Mom is pregnant at this time.
