Things about Orlando

From Politico:

"But the shooting at the Pulse nightclub hit a city that was already, proudly, defying its resort-and-convention stereotype. Though still a tourist mecca, hosting a record 66 million visitors in 2015, it’s also developed a fast-growing biotech cluster, an up-and-coming video game sector, and an international virtual-reality hub. Its median age is only 33, and while it’s still a majority-white city, it’s getting more Hispanic every day, especially since the fiscal crisis in Puerto Rico has accelerated an influx from the island. Tragically, this new Orlando is also the kind of city where a murderer looking to unload his hatred can find a crowded gay club holding Latin Night."
