Lots of reaction around the SoFla blogosphere about Neil Rogers leaving. Personally, I never listened to the guy, but I understand he had quite a devoted following. Here's your Terrible Tuesday evening Sift...
A- Shorter Miami Beach 411...
It's great to beat the Yankees.Pretty good video included.
B- Swampstyle gives us a peek inside swampspace.
C- Ipanemic is traveling through some interesting territory in Texas on his way back to South Florida.
A large red sign with yellow letters (or possibly a yellow sign with red letters) tells me there are burritos ahead. I see an outcropping of trees against the plains. The town of Caprock is defined by this solitary building ahead; by this farmhouse, by this general store, by this home standing with nothing around for miles. I park next to a lone, blue pickup truck. It seems there are children’s swings in the front yard. The entrance is on the side of the house; a screen door behind which the wooden door is open. The springs creak on the outer door as I open it.D- South Florida Lawyers has some comments on Neil Roger's retirement.
Whether it was his mid-70s "topic radio" period of Jews marrying Catholics, abortion rights, and all that stuff that still makes Glenn Garvin really really angry, to his great show on Zeta-4 to his coverage during Hurricane Andrew or 9/11 to his contentious final run, Neil was a constant, a source of opinionated intelligence, smarts, smart-aleck humor and personality, and a softie at heart who always loved his mother. It's a testament to the quality of his show that I often disagreed with him but still always wanted to hear what he had to say.E- Coconut Grove Grapevine recognizes a true Grove hero.
F- Elderly drivers who are gradually losing their ability to navigate the roads need options when we come for their licenses, says Incertus.
G- Brickell Life joins the chatter on Twitter and wonders about its role in the newsroom.
And while I’m convinced that Twitter is now a vital journalistic tool for both reporting events and breaking down the traditional barriers between media and its audience, there are still lingering questions about the rules of engagement in the newsroom. As Twitter becomes more entrenched in daily reporting practices, will new editorial guidelines pop up to govern behavior? Where is the line drawn between what is personally written on Twitter and what is professional pushed out? Once you’ve tweeted, it becomes a permanent matter of public record, which begs the question: should newsrooms establish guidelines to identify a tweet’s authenticity or attribute a proper source? If a journalists retweets something which later proves to be false – particularly in the context of a crisis like in Iran or during a hurricane in South Florida – how will we judge that reporter and the respective media outlet?H- Crossing the street in Miami Springs is pretty rough, according to a video posted by Transit Miami.
