Today in Heritage History, 1868, Florida’s first Constitutional Convention met in Tallahassee. The Convention committees convened over a several day period at the Tallahassee Denny’s in between on-going Bocce Ball and BINGO tournaments. The Convention laid the foundation for several significant and still enforceable State laws in Florida. The Convention agreed that every Floridian was endowed with certain “inalienable rights by their Creator and those were; ‘Early Bird’ dinner specials should always start at 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and noon on Saturdays and Sundays, using the word “Goot” is a State felony, there should never be any traffic penalty imposed for driving slow in any fast lane in the State (with or without a hat), State law should always allow a ten minute limit on early turn signalling, and that discussing bowel movements is permissible at any time and in any public location”.
