Here is tidbit about Florida politics from the Sun Sentinel that would be amusing if its implications were not so disturbing.

Sen. Nan Rich, of Weston, a sponsor of the current bill, has tried to get a law against beastiality for years. Rich cited recent cases of bestiality, including a man from a place called Mossy Head who was suspected of accidentally asphyxiating a family goat during a sex act. …

The law was passed unanimously by the Senate this week. It would make it a first-degree misdemeanor to have sex with an animal, with a penalty of up to a year in jail.

The Senate had passed a similar bill last year, but it fizzled out before it came before the House. The House bill has a similar measure, but it awaits debate.

What is there to debate?

Florida, you may have sunny skies, beautiful beaches, and be home to the happiest place on earth, but let me get this straight here about your state. Gay marriage is illegal (as is it for a gay couple to adopt a child). Yet, having sex with a goat is still legal – and laws to make this a crime have “fizzled out” in the past? Really? Fizzled out?
