How sick can Florida’s Republican legislature get? For that matter, even DeSantis?
Newest example is a House bill passed last week allowing transgender children to be removed from their families.
The bill permits transgender minors to be removed if they receive gender-affirming care.
A similar bill was approved last month by the Senate.
DeSantis has previously expressed support for the bill and is expected to sign it into law when it reaches him.
The recent Fort Lauderdale epic rainstorm did a real number on the community. One part is City Hall. It has been determined the building is “on life support” and a new one is required.
The present building is 8 stories. Its condition so bad no one has been allowed inside to conduct city business.
The building was constructed in the 1960’s. The rainstorm caused flooding from the top of the building downward and from the bottom of the building upward. Every air handler and network of electrical panels ruined. To keep the building open in its present condition would cost $175,000 a day. Staggering!
Another mass shooting. Early sunday at a prom after party in Austin, Texas attended by 250 persons. Just after midnight.
Nine teenagers shot. Fortunately, no one killed.
No further facts available. The matter still under investigation.
The United States spends more on military than the next 10 nations combined.
In 2022, the U.S. spent $877 billion. China #2 spent only $292 billion. Russia # 3 spent $86 billion.
Parrots have the capacity to communicate with each other. They are being taught to make video calls to each other. Friendships being developed as a result.
This information has been revealed based on a study by Northeastern University in collaboration with scientists from MIT and the University of Glasgow. Domesticated birds were taught to call one another on tablets and smartphones. They developed the ability to video call one another on Facebook Messenger.
The language their own. Not human.
The City of Syracuse, N.Y. holds a special place in my history and heart. Three years of law school. A satellite law office. Law school and University supporter for years. Basketball and football supporter. Private box at the Carrier Dome. Etc.
The community was recently named the “Best Bar Town” in America. So determined by Barstool Sports.
The last time I was in Syracuse was 18 years ago for my court trial divorce hearing. Never knew Syracuse to be boozing town in all the years I was there. Drinking yes, boozing no. Syracuse was “normal” when it came to alcohol consumption.
Obviously drinking has to have increased significantly during my absence. I’m not sure the increase in drinking/boozing is anything to be proud of.
The consumption has to be wild. Key West is a drinking town. Goes with its tourist designation. Shameful Syracuse has achieved the reputation.
Enjoy your day!
