Some genius in south Flori-duh thinks the best way to solve the State’s fiscal callousness is to pass a idiotic nonbinding, ineffective resolution declaring it “in the best interests of the citizens and residents [of North Lauderdale]” to divide Florida into two separate states – North Florida and South Florida. (Source).
I don’t know, maybe this isn’t such a bad idea. Divide the State in two -or better yet three (North, South, and Central)- with all the crazies, asshats, and arsonists concentrated in the Northern and Southern portion of the State, while the remainder of us in the Central reap the benefits of continued exploitation of the tourism industry. It’s not bad fiscal policy (for Central Florida) and would certainly improve the quality of life for those of us who love living here but are constantly embarrassed because all the crazy shit seems to happen in Flori-duh.
