Alive and Well.... 

Via Atrios: Newsday.com: Report: Slavery 'Alive and Well' in U.S.
Modern-day slavery is alive and well in Florida, the head of a human rights center said Tuesday as it released a report on people forced to work as prostitutes, farmworkers and maids across the state.

Human traffickers bring thousands of people into the United States each year and Florida is believed to be one of the top three destinations, along with New York and Texas, according to the Center for the Advancement of Human Rights at Florida State University.
Texas and Florida. Curious. Shouldn't we be seeing a Drudge headline soon? Maybe something like, "Slavery Flourishes Under Governors Jeb and George"
