From OpinionJournal's Tony & Tacky segment:

When Broward County Mayor Kristin Jacobs put palm trees and tropical plants in the county commission chambers in Fort Lauderdale last year, she wasn't trying to add feminine touches. The point, Wednesday's South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported, was to show the board's sympathy for environmental causes. That was before the chambers were invaded by gnats and then by gnat-loving crickets. The foliage is now gone. The Sun-Sentinel says Mayor Jacobs blames the pests on an 'unbalanced ecosystem.'
The only way that could be much funnier would be if instead of removing the foliage that had sprayed it with DDT. Or maybe napalm.
