Miami, really all of Florida, is lucky to be served by a crusading and muckraking newspaper like the Miami Herald. And today, the Herald has really outdone itself again.
The Herald broke this shocking story, which we are sure has all of you gasping in shock and surprise:
Florida's prison system is underfunded!
"NO!" you must have shouted in pure disbelief. "Say it ain't so Joe!"
And yet, sadly, it is. Our prison system is underfunded.
Read the story here, and weep.
In other shocking news, the Herald is reporting that spring is on it's way, the Republicans and Democrats aren't getting along, Miami has beautiful beaches, and cell phones are here to stay.
We are so lucky. Really.
Enjoy your Sunday.
