….I still like living in Florida.
Partly true. Coming from Michigan, where there is a constant grey pall of clouds over the entire state in winter, I was startled by the sun. I thought, at the time, that the near constant blinding sun surely must be what drives many in the state mad. But we acclimated. Perhaps it was the sunglasses. Or maybe we were maddened too.
Despite the premise of this article, that 90% if the state is backwards and poverty-stricken, Florida is pretty nice. We like it. And you can find underground backwardness just about anywhere.
