There was a car chase today in Florida. This is not unusual. What was unusual was that this particular car chase garnered the attention of FOX's Shep Smith. For the uninitiated, Shep Smith covering your frantic, last-ditch effort to escape the police is roughly akin to Martin Scorsese telling a mafioso he wants to buy his life story, or Gauguin saying your lawn has the most striking fauna in Tahiti. It means something. The man knows quality. So does Twitter.
