Bonus Bouquet:

To the 100-year-old oak tree that fell on the governor of Florida’s mansion during Hurricane Idalia. Thank you for sacrificing your life to remind certain people climate change is real.



To Governor Ron DeSantis (again) for… what should it be for this month? Should it be because members of his campaign are avid supporters of neo-nazis? Or for ostracizing gay kids? Or maybe banning the complete discussion of menstrual cycles for young girls in grades K-6? What about the fact he accepted multiple undisclosed private flights and lodging through wealthy donor?. Wonder what he promised them. Tax breaks? Deregulation? Maybe a fun trip to a private golf course? But the fact is, he is just another corrupt Republican.
