Killer bees invade Florida!

As a kid in the 1970s, I used to watch documentaries and "In Search Of" episodes devoted to sasquatch, Nessie and other mysterious perils.

One of these feared creatures was indisputedly real, yet faraway: killer bees. These shows would always claim that the bees' arrival in the United States was years away, and that we'd be safe until, say, 1982. Those predictions came and went without notice. (Where were you, MSM?)

Well, the invasion is finally under way in earnest after years of a handful of isolated reports. The bees have settled in Central and South Florida. Key quote: "It's a very gruesome way to die."
