Tonight at the stroke of midnight, Florida State Senator Nan Rich's anti-bestiality bill goes in to effect in that dangling, backwards state. It took Senator Rich three attempts to get the bill passed - apparently because her colleagues thought she was wasting their time attempting to ban something that never happens anyway. Which is sort of funny, in a terribly tragic way, because the Florida New Times has a startlingly lengthy list of recent interspecies mating attempts that ended in simple animal abuse charges.

There's also a chance Florida lawmakers might have accidentally banned normal ol' people sex with some ambiguous wording in their bill, but what's certainly not ambiguous is their definition of "sexual contact". That medically precise description might not be safe for work (or any other time, really), but it does make San Francisco's butt legislation seem downright prudish by comparison.
