The sheer absurdity of it ... I'm talking about Dean Crouch. The Tallahassee Academy Sports manager whose selfless action probably saved at least one life -- yet, cost him his job. The story has been exploding on social media since Wednesday, when it first appeared in the Tallahassee Demomcrat, and why wouldn't it?.
In an executive order issued Thursday, Gov. Rick Scott called on counties not to limit the public's access to beaches, and he directed the Department of Environmental Protection to make sure it happens.

It sure helps when the board chairman of an agency charged with deciding whether your environmental impact plan meets muster is also your bought-and-paid-for consultant. So, approval worked out very nicely, thank you, for All Aboard Florida/Brightline.
There's a tangible money trail that links Vladimir Putin’s Russian government with U.S. environmental groups -- and, yes, some of those groups are in Florida.
