On the Stupidity of Reporters

This article talks about the downturn of the economy and how it affects retirees. For the most part it is okay, except, there is one statement that makes utterly no sense:

The Florida panhandle, home to the US' largest population of retirees, has become a center of financial panic.

Except.... there is not one single word written about the Florida Panhandle (where I happen to live).  It mentions Miami, Dade County, Sarasota,Tampa and Ft Myers, none of which are within hundreds of miles of the Florida Panhandle.

Does this person not know what Panhandle means?????
