A word about the alligator incident

Orlando is certainly getting their fair share of bad things.  First the massacre in the night club and now at Disney World where a 2-year-old boy was snatched up by an alligator.  The little boy was playing with his father on the edge of one of the many bodies of water there.  An alligator appeared out of nowhere and took him away.  The boy's body was found yesterday.

Now many people are up in arms about there not being enough signs warning of the danger even though there were signs telling people to stay away.  It's just a matter of time before the law suits start.

That this is a horrible tragedy is of course obvious.  But when did we lose our collective common sense?  You're in Florida.  You're by a body of water.  What's known to live in such environments in Florida?  Why can't we just leave this as a horrible accident and hope others get the message?

Is this cold hearted?  I don't think so.  Just realistic.
