Thoughts From Carl Hiaasen On The Orlando Shooting, Life In FloridaPlay
Author Carl Hiaasen was born and raised in Florida, and often channels the state’s unique sensibility in his writing.
As the state, and the nation, grieve the senseless killing of 49 people in an Orlando gay nightclub, Hiaasen talks with Here & Now's Robin Young about the grim week that the state has had: in addition to the mass shooting, there was the killing of singer Christina Grimmie and the snatching of a 2-year-old by an alligator at a Walt Disney Resort.
