And another $86 Million down the rathole that is the Florida Panthers. Here are some reasons why this is a waste of money apart from all the normal reasons that ransoms bailouts to sports teams are a bad idea:

- They suck. Literally, they haven't had a decent team since maybe their first year or two in the 90's. They're just a nice, easy place for players to end their careers long after they've peaked -- a hockey hospice, if you will, eh?

- The experience sucks. No organ player, poor lights and effects after goals, and no real fan base. Most of the time, tourists go to see their team play the Panthers. You can literally get free tickets just by getting a haircut at Supercuts.

- They had to pass a tax hike on hotels to cover the difference, dampening the tourism industry in an area that runs on tourism, for a hockey team no one cares about.

Also, this is like the 10th time I've read Lois Wexler (the leader of the pro-taxi Uber opposition) use the lemon/lemonade analogy for a different issue. It's like her fucking catch phrase at this point.

I think that's one of the best. Close tie with Ohio, Arizona, Missouri, Colorado and either Vermont or New Hampshire, whichever one searched for climate change. Yeah, I don't know my states.

You might need to reduce the size of your screen-view. The only way I can see the whole map is to zoom out until the text of comments is too small to read.

You can also right-click on the image and use "View Image" to have your browser scale it, rather than having phpBB not scale it. Or "Copy Image URL" and put it in a new tab.

Oklahoma is awfully interested in transgender identity.
