You are right about hot, humid and dull. It's where people go to die.

Which idol is that?

There was a rally for that flag three years ago.

Since then, not a word in regards to that flag.

Jeanette, the “ Stars and Bars” , commonly known as the “Confederate (National) Flag”, never was the actual national flag. The Stars and Bars was actually the battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia. That flag is the cult “idol” to which I referred.

That flag was the battle flag and never a national flag. That is true. However, referring to it as the "Stars and Bars" is incorrect. It is known as the Dixie Flag and the Southern Cross.

Don't forget the occasional alligator in the back yard.

There is nothing wrong with having alligators in your yard, they taste good.

I heard on the radio today they caught one in Lake Michigan — Alligator found swimming in Lake Michigan

So not just Florida...
