Weekends

If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about people and animals acting badly and the wild happenstance of life. In that spirit each night during the 9 and 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.) Here are tonight’s stories:

Man Knifed Kin During Almond Milk Row

SEPTEMBER 30--An argument over whether almond milk or whole milk was the superior milk turned violent when a Florida Man allegedly slashed his cousin with a pocket knife, according to an arrest report. Police responding Sunday afternoon to a disturbance at a home in Lehigh Acres arrested Justin Garcia, 30, for aggravated battery, a felony.

A bat is to blame for a blackout that left the specialist baby units at Adelaide's Women's and Children's Hospital without power for almost an hour on Tuesday night.

Be sure to tune in Monday through Friday nights at 9 and 10pm if you want to play along.
