The Snap A few short weeks ago Florida reasserted itself as the destination that makes democracy fun. Sure, the state is chock-full-o-weirdness and tends to shoot people for walking around or listening to music, but it’s also the state that gave us hanging chads back before Al Gore became a rockstar environmentalist and George Bush [&he
