    Florida was weird as only it can be in 2011

    Florida was weird as only it can be in 2011


    TALLAHASSEE Did you hear about the giant Lego man that washed up on Siesta Key beach? What about the man who walked into a bar, ordered a beer and disappeared for 30 minutes to rob a bank, only to return and finish his drink? Or how about the puzzling story of the baby grand piano that showed up on a sandbar near Miami?

    That's Florida, where weird is an everyday event.

    Over the past year, a 92-year-old woman fired four shots at a neighbor who refused to kiss her, a Delray Beach man cut off a piece of a dead whale that washed ashore planning to eat it and an 8-year-old girl gave her teacher some marijuana and said: "This is some of my mom's weed."

    The piano was a mystery for about a month. On Jan. 1, 2011, the charred instrument showed up on a Biscayne Bay sandbar, a couple hundred yards from shore. A 16-year-old student eventually admitted he put it there as part of an art project.

    Thanks for posting that Mystic. I had read about some of them, but there were a lot of new ones. All were good. This esp. comes at a good time because I just got my tickets for a visit there.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
