Well, as usual, this being Monday, the floodgates opened and everybody was posting. As a result, I have a lot of ground to cover for this evening's Sift. Get comfortable.
A- The world according to babalu: Obama wants the U.S. to be a communist state and employs the thug-like tactics of the
If it bothers you so, i could point out a few acts of "violence and thuggery" recently from Obama backers, with pictures and everything. Let me know, Id be happuy to ram them down your snide throat.
Not unlike a dumbed down 50 Cent, babalu delivers day after day.
B- Indeed, Eye on Miami has a sense of humor.
C- The Cuban reforms? Just an illusion, according to Miami & Beyond.
D- Ipanemic covers the Exxxotica Convention for Miami Beach 411.
It was just like a regular convention only with more dildos. And porn stars. And whips. And latex. There was a stage off in the far corner, featuring screaming orgasm competitions and wet t-shirt contests.
E- A couple new clubs are noted by Miami Nights.
F- Mayor Manny thinks the Miami Herald spent too much time writing about his blog. Two words for the Mayor: Hyper. Link.
G- Miamism Pix gives us a good visual of the recent changes to the Miami skyline.
H- [redacted] on Miami's homeless...
If New York has the smartest homeless people in the country, then Miami has the friendliest. It makes sense: After all, bums in Miami have had the good fortune of being homeless in a tropical paradise. Just the other day when Brooke and I were at the beach, a homeless guy came walking down the shoreline, trudged onto the sand, plopped his house-bag down and just laid there in the sun.

Because he had nothing else to do.
I- Spangdish rates some restaurants as to their kid friendliness quotient.
J- Mark your calendars. Arianna Huffington is coming to Coral Gables on May 6th, according to the (covert) overt.
