In his infinite wisdom, Florida Governor Jeb Bush is going to sign a bill into lawthat would ‘allow people who feel threatened on the street, in a bar, at a ball game – or just about anywhere – to “meet force with force” to defend themselves without fear of being prosecuted’.
I’m going to disregard that fact that the amount of kitsch and pastel in Florida is equivalent to a diet of lead paint chips and glue-sniffing. I’ll also disregard the fact that 99% of Florida’s population has a median age of 82. You know what? Actually let’s not disregard those facts. We’ve seen what happens to Florida when they get all fired up over Terry Schiavo, do we really want these people being legally allowed to start gunfights in the middle of the street?
Just remember. O.J. lives in Florida.
