Florida!?!

I just double-checked Florida’s population statistics. (Thinking ahead to 2012 election stuff.) It was scary.

Florida is one of the weirdest places in the union. Seems like every 3 or 4 years there’s some major outbreak of crazy there. Ages ago was Elian Gonzales, then there was the 2000 election, followed by Terri Schiavo, and now Trayvon Martin. And yet even though that place is so crazy it’s growing by HUGE rates. Like around 23% a decade over the past 30 years. By comparison, a lot of midwestern states grow by a few percentage points a decade.

That means that Florida’s crazy is just going to become more visible over the years.
