A single ill-timed disturbance can destroy an entire colony.

As lawmakers get ready to head into a special session on the budget, all eyes are on the issue of health care. I refer to health care and not Medicaid expansion as most media outlets call it, because that option isn't being meaningfully considered. Instead, Florida Republicans continue to bicker over how to solve a very real problem with everything other than the most obvious solution, par for the course here in the land of the weird.
