It was a loooooong weekend, and the weather was freaking beautiful. Hope you enjoyed it. Back to the grind. Or, rather, back to the grind after reading this while drinking a delicious, delicious coffee.
FRIDAY, NOV. 24:
Famous lawyer who parties and is all in on medical marijuana John Morgan tweeted that he wouldn't be running for governor of Florida as a Democrat in 2018, further diminishing hopes that there might be someone you "could have a beer with, you know?" on a ballot anywhere ever again.
Black Friday was apparently slightly less of a chaotic moron-filled free-for-all this year — due to the preponderance of pre-Black Friday and online sales, not because there are fewer idiots more than willing to trample you to get to a 10 percent discount on a sub-par soundbar.
SATURDAY, NOV. 25:
The remains of a "small-framed male" were found in a trash can in a wooded lot in Homosassa. You know how some things have words on them like "Always dispose of properly"? This is not disposing of properly.
A small plane made an emergency landing in a field in Odessa, which, while we're really glad the pilot is safe and everything, kind of makes us wonder how many people have been other planes about to crash, facing their own mortality, and thought, "well at least I'm not in a field in Odessa." (We kid. Odessa is actually pretty cool.)
SUNDAY, NOV. 26:
And finally, post-Thanksgiving travel was the busiest it's been in more than a decade, and made the TSA's top five days ever for number of fliers screened. Which was awesome, because the one thing you really want to do after spending two days arguing with relatives over whether or not the president is a barely sentient radish is stand in line or sit in traffic for endless hours.
