They're up and running.
Here's an excerpt from Editor Janie Campbell's opening post.
It's these contrasts and complexities that make Miami a place others can visit and never begin to grasp fully. For those of us who live here, it's lifelong learning in a city layered by the most fascinating forces ever to punch a seething metropolitan area out of a sleepy beach town in a matter of just a few decades. The most American thing about Miami is that it is not American at all, making it a city where anyone -- and anything -- can find a home. We have become a vibrant, multicultural metropolis, but simultaneously a place in which corruption is rampant, crime runs exotic, politics are bloodsport, and swaths of people rarely leave their neighborhoods, neglecting the larger community. Our raw materials are more bare, our morality plays more extreme, our excess staggering, and everyone's got a machete. For anyone who undertakes covering this city, it's imperative to understand and consider all the parts, and to regularly present the whole organism of Miami whether momentarily weighty or absurd, or sunny or dark, lest the narrative become contrived. In a place as compartmentalized as Miami, it's easy to ignore the pieces that don't belong to you -- but every piece matters.SFDB welcomes HuffPost Miami to the daily churn of the South Florida media machine.
We're determined to keep that in mind as we cover a city that's not only nurturing its cultural gifts in the shine of an international spotlight, but grappling with generational sins of corruption and violence. We're here to cover the news, to add context, to ask questions, to document where drugs are stashed, to always remember the Orange Bowl, and to make as much sense as we can of our disparate ills and failings, highs and titles. We'll laugh, we'll cry, we'll opine, and we invite you to add your voice -- that is, when it's not at the airport.
I think it's only good news for readers and information addicts like myself. I'm already seeing contributions by local bloggers like Miami Dish, Transit Miami and The Heat Lightning on their front page which is a good sign.
This should be fun.
