Flippers Swim Back to South Florida

They call them Flippers, Flippers,
Faster than lightning;
No one you see
Is smarter than they....

That's right folks, our favorite highly intelligent mammal has been spotted cavorting in Florida waters. Florida Trend reports that the flipper is schooling again, only this time the goofy grin is for real and these animals really are our friends!

The report says real estate speculation is in vogue again, with a difference:

Unlike the speculative flippers during the boom -- scourges who unnaturally jacked up prices, spawned reality-TV shows, and led to the economic crumble -- today's flippers are erudite capitalists who could usher in positive change by buying dilapidated and abandoned homes, patching them up and selling them for a market-bearable price, experts say.
