Florida Is Weird

So I was reading my knitting blogs with the local news on the tv in the background, this isn't strange normally but then I haven't always lived in Florida. The "Health Tracker" on the CBS local news felt a need to report sinus infections, bronchitis, sore throats, flus, and colds in Alachua County. No, they didn't report numbers but the reporter did list the main diagnoses for various towns. I am an AVID local news person, I loved my local Providence newscasters; HOWEVER, I have never had a play-by-play of local people's colds. This is my new favorite local news moment of all time.

I know it isn't knitting-related, but aren't you glad you know that Florida cares about your health?

  1. So does this mean that you "alert the media" every time you sneeze? We had a slow news day here a few years ago, where the headline and article in the local paper featured a 5-year-old girl's birthday party at a nail salon.

    I think I prefer the sinus report.
