Yep, it's Friday, the best day of the week, in my opinion. While you were sleeping, SoFla bloggers were posting. Here's a little of what they had to say, collected and collated in your morning Sift.
A- Carlos Miller gives us an update on his appeal and asks for help in funding it.
It looks like I’m appealing this without a lawyer. Pro Se as they say.
The few lawyers that I spoke to were asking for more than $10,000 to take the case. Considering that I’ve already spent almost that much so far on this case, I am unable to put myself further in debt.
B- 305 shares photos of some street art taken during a recent art walk in Miami.
C- Washington Mutual has gone belly up, according to Reidblog.
D- This photograph of a kayak from Miamism makes me nervous for some reason.
E- Bark Bark Woof Woof says we're learning a lot about John McCain as this country tries to deal with its latest crisis.
History has shown that how a man runs for president presages how he'll run the country, and if what Mr. Brooks describes is the real John McCain, then he has no business being president. His inability to multitask isn't an endearment, it's a fatal flaw, and this week's response to the financial crisis -- the "suspension" of his campaign, the call to delay the debates, the invocation of World War II -- show that he's not capable of scaling his responses to the events. This isn't new; Mr. McCain's knee-jerk responses to previous events such as the Russia/Georgia conflict -- he advocating going to war against Russia -- to the threat of Hurricane Gustav -- he suspended the first day of the GOP convention -- were indicative. If he truly believes that, then it makes you wonder how he'd respond to something of a truly monumental scale or if he has the ability to handle the many reins of running the country, and it shows a startling lack of perspective, which is not a desirable quality in a president. And if it's all a cynical attempt by his campaign to ramp up the fear quotient for political expediency (a lesson learned from the Bush administration), it adds another document to the ever-growing pile of evidence that John McCain lacks the judgment and the fitness to be president.
