Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

No bubbles

From the Daily Telegraph-

A clown has had to stop blowing bubbles for children to chase after being warned it could be a safety hazard.

Tony Turner, also known as Barney Baloney, will now stick to clowning and juggling after being refused insurance by several companies which feared youngsters might slip on the bubbles' residue.

Mr Turner, 47, who is married with three children, said yesterday: "The fun is being taken out of children's lives by bureaucracy.

"This whole health and safety business has gone too far. Kids eat jelly and ice cream and that gets on the floor and is slippy. Does anyone want to stop them eating that?"

Equity, the actors' union, has now agreed to insure the Sheffield clown's act but, after taking advice, he will no longer be blowing bubbles.
All I can say is- Has the world gone insane? Will lawn watering be banned because it causes wet sidewalks?
