Now that is bizarre."If every poor man is to come here and start requesting money for all his children, the applicants will never be satisfied and the nation's finances will collapse." Emperor Tiberius: Tacitus:Annals

It's not just in FL.
When one of my grandfathers was in a nursing home he got
in a nice brawl with another guy. Both in wheelchairs. It was
like Rockem Sockem Robots. :D In Jersey.May the FORCE be with you!

Yeah, my dad got in a fight with his roommate when I put him in a home. They got him a lower functioning roommate. Dad was, for the first year or so, the "Alfa Male" in his retirement home. It was pretty funny.
