If you had a somewhat normal high-school experience, you probably knew someone who thought they were much more popular than they really were and carried themselves with a completely unearned sense of arrogance. You know, that guy who doesn’t get invited to the lake house and then claims he actually turned everyone else down.

Ron DeSantis caused a lot of consternation at the beginning of June by signing such a bill in Florida, and now they’ve been added to the list (see Teeth Are Gnashed After Ron DeSantis Makes a Move on the First Day ‘Pride Month’).
