Tip O'Neill is generally credited with having said, "All politics are local." There is a certain truth to that not just in politics but on all the stages of human activity. In Central Florida over the past two weeks a number of things have happened to reinforce that notion in sport and other venues. At the confluence of local sport and education the last few weeks have been rich in both the ludicrous and the ironic.
