    Florida was one main characters in the 1970's sit-com "Good Times".
    Yup. Exactly what I was thinking. 'Florida Evans'

    I don't think they are so much cruel as they are ignorant.

    I am NOT kidding: Meconium. Mom was insistent on it, even put it on the birth certificate application. Finally, the nurses decided that they had an absolute duty to the little girl to explain to her Mom what meconium is, and to beg her to pick something else. Luckily, she did.
