It's Friday and I would be all about the celebrating the arrival of the weekend but wouldn't you know, Mr. Annoying Cold has decided to pay a visit and I am down for the count. Actually, it's not that bad, but I am the first person to scold anyone who dares venture into our office with a sniffle, sneeze or cough, so I'm staying home today to set an example for everyone out there who insists on spreading their germs among co-workers. Don't do it!
And with that, here's your Nyquil-enhanced morning Sift...
A- Shorter Carlos Miller...
The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office should be more selective in what cases they prosecute especially those that involve me.B- Someone stole Jen K's black Pake track bike the other night, according to Miami Bike Scene, but I think we can eliminate Superman from the list of suspects.
Her friend's beach cruiser was also stolen, both their Kryptonite U-Locks were cut by the thieves.C- Man or Maniac? has a lot to say about Republican Rising Star Bobby Jindal and his rubber stamp of traditional conservative ideology.
D- Random Pixels comments on babalu's Val Prieto soliciting his readers for "haircut money."
I admire Val's desire to rid Cuba of Fidel, but I doubt that donating to Babalublog is going to do much to hasten his demise.E- Miamism posts a nice night photo of the pool at the Delano.
In Val's world it's OK to donate money so he can get a haircut but just don't send any of that money to Cuba or you'll be branded as a loser!
F- Reidblog has some thoughts on the wingnuttery of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that is being held this week.
So CPAC was down to jokes about Obama not being a citizen, jokes from The Moustache about blowing up Chicago, and oh, yeah, the increasingly lonely intellectual, Newt Gingrich. Maybe they could get Michael Steele to come down and perform some hip-hop???.
