Indeed, as he makes clear in his new book, "The Thing About Florida: Exploring a Misunderstood State," he really, really, really doesn’t want to touch any alligators at all. And when he finally does ...

Maybe in a library book, or in a used book you bought, or even in a book you've had on the shelf for years and had forgotten about?
