Floridians' Faces Turn a Lighter Shade of Pink

After the constant ribbing and perpetually attempting to apologize for all the embarrassing things my state generally offers up to this great nation, finally there is something to be proud of.

The Florida Supreme Court threw out the state's voucher system that
allows some children to attend private schools at taxpayer expense, saying
it violates the state constitution's requirement of a uniform system of
free public schools.


"What we must do to is to stop hair-brained schemes of funding (private)
schools and focus on adequately funding the public schools," Smith said.
"That's what our constitution requires of us and our taxpayers expect of us."

After that whole 2000 election, electing Jeb Bush, the Terri Schiavo debacle and harboring rabid anti-choice activists like Terry Randall, this offers some redemption for us Floridians, albeit just a little.

    Cookie, everytime I think we're making progress, I remember that we're the only state with a Constitutional Amendment that prohibits cruelty to pigs.

    This keeps my state pride, as well as my optimism, in check.

    It just prohibits cuelty to pregnant pigs, right? It's all about women's rights in a porcine sorta way.
