Well, maybe

o, Buffalo, NY, forum has a June 2008 discussion entry titled, "Do you have a gripe about New York State?"

o dated 10/27/2009 gives us, 'NY State's population continues to leave', "A report by the Empire Center for New York State Policy...NY...the largest loss of residents to other states from 2000 to 2008. Moved to other states...30% of them moved to FL and another 33% moved to neighboring PA, NJ and CT."

o gives us two entries from dated 10/25/2009: 'Two fugitives being sought by crimestoppers', one facing various "aggravated" charges "with a firearm" and the other "violation of probation of burglary of an occupied dwelling". The same Internet storyline sidebar also presents, 'Two men died after being struck by vehicle', "Two pedestrians...of Fort Myers... allegedly fighting in the middle of Okeechobee Road in Fort Pierce...died after being hit by a vehicle, according to FL Highway Patrol report. ...were in the inside lane when the front of a westbound vehicle struck them..[one] thrown into the inside lane and ...[one] thrown into the grass median. They were taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center with fatal injuries...the driver...failed to see them in time. ..." Each set of circumstances named different men.

Numerous pedestrian fatalities are perhaps testament to some kind of unusual mentality become prevalent here in South FL, where mute fear in the face of FL wildlife is demonstrated with a high volume of firearm sales and incessant uses of automotive vehicles characteristic of states which mass-produce manufactured vehicles.
