I have lived in the Orlando area for about 1 year now. Since moving here, I have nnoticed that when a news story is reported on radio, TV, or newspaper, it seems as if the media looks for any possible way to relate the story or someone in the story to Orlando. Quite often, it is a major reach (along the lines of 6 degrees of separation). I don’t remember this being the case anywhere else I have lived.
Orlando media seems like it feels the need to justify it’s importance by showing that newsworthy people have some connection. Once, the story was reported of a lottery winner in another state. This was followed up by the broadcaster saying “And her mother lives right here in Central Florida.”
Is it just Orlando? Did I not notice this for some reason while living in other states?
Well, shut my mouth. It’s also illegal to put squirrels down your pants for the purposes of gambling.
