Florida is the New California, Part XXVII

From the New York Times, here, via Talking Points Memo, of all places. Jumping sturgeon are threatening boaters way down upon the Suwannee River.
Leaping sturgeon have injured three people on the Suwannee this year, including a woman on a Jet Ski and a girl whose leg was shattered when one of the giant fish jumped aboard her boat. Eight others were hit last year, and with traffic growing on the storied river, sturgeon are joining alligators and hurricanes on the list of things to dread in Florida.
The author forgot to include New York Yankees logos. Everywhere.

In what might be evidence of increasing cultural ignorance, no where in the article is the connection between Stephen Foster and the Suwannee River mentioned. Sigh.
