Florida whackos too close to home

I could walk there from my home. Literally wouldn't take me more than 15 minutes.
BELLEAIR BEACH — Everyone knows it's not safe to drink and drive. Better beware of drinking and getting on a pool float, too.

Especially if you're in the Gulf of Mexico.

The U.S. Coast Guard on Wednesday afternoon rescued a man on a pool float who had drifted about a mile out into the gulf.

The man, identified as Jerry Whipple, is "suspected of being extremely inebriated," said Petty Officer First Class Mariana O'Leary.

"Suspected of being highly inebriated"? Surely they're being TOO polite!

The Coasties are very polite. To a fault.
