Default Florida zooms to the top (bottom?) again

Manhunt For Manatee-Riding Lady Comes To An End In Florida

Quote:
Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri held a news conference to decry the alleged abuse of an animal he called 'a huge part of our culture here in Florida' and 'a very integral part of what Florida is about.' ...

'Go ride a Jet Ski. Don't use animals,' the sheriff said.
Because Jet Skis are the manatee's bestest friend.

Jet skis are far less harmful than boats with an open propeller.

Mine wasn't sarcastic. 7 out of 8 manatees surveyed would prefer to be hit with a jetski than an exposed prop.

I don't believe you! For something that important he'd call me and tell me himself.

He told me he was about a half hour from your house but didn't want me to say anything because he had a surprise for you.

Counter-rotating props for the full slice and dice effect.

Gas Station in Jacksonville, if the buzz is to be believed. Classy.
