Isn't the Florida Council on Physical Fitness supposed to whip the state's kids into shape? If so, it's a bad sign when an 11-year-old boy faints in the Capitol -- while attending an event for the Council on Physical Fitness. From The Buzz:

An 11-year-old boy collapsed and fainted Wednesday in the state Capitol courtyard during a midday event recognizing members of the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness. A large crowd gasped as Dylan Wilson, a fifth-grade student at Roberts Elementary School, hit the brick pavement head first, making a horrifying sound.

Well, I guess we should be glad that there were members of the fitness council on hand, right? Apparently, they stood slack-jawed while Dr. Charlie went to work.

As Capitol police summoned help, Gov. Charlie Crist kneeled by the boy's head and used a red file folder as a fan to keep the boy cool in the 80-degree heat. "Just relax. Just relax," Crist told Dylan.

Where the hell was Council Member Tim Tebow?
