Hot Stuff.

The heat probably has a detrimental affect on those down in Florida. How else can you explain the sity of Miami installing steel benches at outdoor bus stops?

MIAMI (AP) - City officials are in the hot seat - literally. Mayor Manny Diaz and others are working to fix new black steel benches at city bus stops, which have proven to be too hot to sit on in the summer sun.

"I've sat on a bench myself and it's uncomfortably warm even with a pair of pants on," Assistant City Manager Frank Rollason said Monday.

About 150 of the 1,500 new benches have already been installed in the city, replacing older ones made of cement and wood.

Maybe they didn't know that it gets hot down there in Florida. It isn't like hot spells are an common occurrence down there.
