Go, Florida, go!

Carl Hiaasen and many other writers often work in a subgenre of mystery fiction that I've heard called the "South Florida wacko school" and similar names.  What's particularly fun about their fiction is how much of the weird elements they steal from real-life events in the state in which I grew up.

We can all share in many of these same odd events easily, via Twitter, in particular this Twitter feed.  Check it out, enjoy its humorous tweet renditions of the events, and click on the source links to find the true stories behind almost all (but not all) of the entries.

Florida is a very special place indeed.

My thanks to Kyle for bringing this to my attention.
