Here's just a few things I found in this morning's mainstream media sources.
A- Herald: The difference between Hialeah and Weston when it comes to health care.
As the nation's leaders debate the merits of healthcare reform, what's happening in Hialeah and Weston forms a stark tale of two cities at the opposite ends of the spectrum.B- Herald: They write letters.
More than half of Hialeah adults aged 18-64 -- 53.1 percent -- lack health insurance, according to Census data released last week. That's almost three times the national average and the highest rate in South Florida. The lowest -- 13.8 percent -- is in Weston.
That disparity ``could certainly be a poster child about the need for reform,'' says Robert Berenson, a physician who is a health policy expert at the Urban Institute.
If healthcare reform is socialism, then I encourage all those protesting to relinquish Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, food stamps and GI benefits.C- Sun-Sentinel: The dangers of MySpace.
LOIS KAHN, Coral Gables
A man in his late teens to early 20s was robbed after meeting a woman on MySpace who asked him to drive her around town. The victim, of Lantana, chatted on MySpace with a woman Friday evening and met her within hours of "meeting" her online, police said.D- WPLG: The Hurricanes forget to show up to play.
The woman gave the man her phone number and he called her.
She asked him to pick her up and the two drove around a bit before the woman asked if they could give her friend a ride. They picked up a man nearby in the 1000 block of North Seacrest Boulevard. He asked to be dropped off in the 700 block of Northeast Third Street. After that, the victim was supposed to go to the woman's house, police said. He was robbed instead.
When they got to Third Street by about 10:30 p.m., the passenger pulled out a handgun. Other men at that address surrounded the car and ordered the victim out. The robbers stole the victim's pants, wallet and keys. He then ran to a nearby store and called police. The crooks didn't take his car, but it had to be towed because he didn't have his keys.
BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Jacory Harris planned to play it cool against Virginia Tech.
The 11th-ranked Hokies blew up that plan in about five minutes, harassing the Hurricanes' quarterback into early mistakes and dominating No. 9 Miami 31-7 in a downpour on Saturday.
