Hiaasen is a long-term award winning journalist with the Miami Herald, a rather respectible newspaper.

And if you'd been reading and writing the FloriDuh! news as long as he's done, you'd come to realize that his books are not wild fantasies, but almos a pale reflection of what passes for normal in his corner of the world.
