Alligators in Florida attacking joggers, golfers, running amuck? Don't think so.

Send feedback »
I've seen media hysteria before, and here's another perfect example of it. All these alligator attacks -- three fatal attacks in six days -- in Florida are weird, but I hardly think we should go out and kill them and rip their bellies open to see who's i… more »
