* February 16, 2017: a man in Ocala is [[http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-mark-barnett-explosives-target20170216-story.html arrested]] for plotting to bomb ten [[UnfortunateNames Target]] big-box stores up and down the East Coast. What makes it a true Florida story is the fact that it ''wasn't'' motivated by ideology (i.e. terrorism) or even a personal grudge; rather, it was a hare-brained scheme to drive down Target's stock price so he could snatch up cheap stock in the company and get rich once it rebounded.

* For that matter, Florida has much more permissive Freedom of Information laws than other states. That means that whenever there's a slow news day, the gap can be filled by submitting [=FoI=] requests to the police in order to collect OnlyInFlorida stories.
