Florida

United States of America

Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States, bordering Alabama to the northwest and Georgia to the north. It was the 27th state admitted to the United States. Much of the land mass of the state is a large peninsula with the Gulf of Mexico to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

  • People keep asking me what’s going to happen in the election. Come on, what do you think, who’s going to win? Will Florida be a fifty-two-car, sudden-fog, semitruck-crossed-the-median pile up like last time? I’m not predicting anything. The state just spent $2 million on yet another list of ineligible voters. Then they tried to keep the list secret, even though it’s public record. And sure enough, this “felon roll” is as messed up as the one from 2000. Lots of the “felons” aren’t felons. Even if they were felons, they’ve had their rights restored in many cases. Lots of them seem to be black. None of them seems to be Latino. A cynical person might wonder if this has anything to do with the way African Americans tend to vote Democratic in Florida and Cubans Republican.
