It's TGIF, readers. Let's get this day started and off to a good start with your morning Sift...
A- David Letterman lists the top 10 reasons why Jeb Bush won't run for President and Miami-Dade Dems has the video.
B- Lots of testosterone is present as Carlos Miller returns to a Metrorail station a second time with camera in hand and news crew in tow apparently because there was still work to be done and poorly paid security guards to excite. Voices got loud and sometimes rose to surprisingly high pitches in the ensuing hilarity that once again required the professionals to respond and sort out whether photography is a crime when Carlos is behind the lens...and looking for trouble.
