TGIF, readers. Yep, it's the weekend. Hope you have something cool to do this weekend. If you don't, check out the SFDB Weekend Widget in the right sidebar for some ideas. Have a good morning and enjoy your morning Sift.
A- Just in time for Halloween, Go Hydrology! shows us a spooky swamp hike in South Florida.
B- The Green Parrot shares some images from the Eric Lindell Band's performance last night.
C- Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry doesn't think participating in debates is a good idea, according to the latest from Bark Bark Woof Woof.
D- Gun Free Zone whips out a fancy chart that supports his argument that guns don't make a country violent...or something...but I usually don't listen too much to people or organizations who consider Puerto Rico a country.
E- Political Cortadito rips into the Miami Herald for their endorsements in Hialeah's political contests.
Ladra will always love the Miami Herald and be grateful for the incredible talent and drive there that has made her who she is today. But times have changed. And it's a good thing that the Miami Herald's editorial recommendations in elections are not worth their weight in the paper that prints it anymore.
Perhaps it's no wonder, either, after reading the batch of endorsements the editorial board -- or, rather, two people from the editorial board -- have made. Because these recommends make it very clear that the Herald is completely disconnected from the community and the contest where it pretends to promote candidates.
