SFDB Post Of The Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done over the previous week. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
I'm a coupla days late on this but with all the holiday hoopla, I seriously doubt anyone missed the week's Post of the Week. Let's take a look at this week's selections.
Runners-Up: Sex and the Beach presented an epic three part post on fishing in the Florida Keys that was well-composed and generously imaged. Mike LaMonica took us along for the ride when he recently ran a half-marathon in Fort Lauderdale and provided an entertaining video that documented his efforts. Justice Building Blog coordinated the collection and collation of data gathered by approximately 20 lawyers over the course of 6 months in order to determine the average wait times for attorneys visiting the various detention facilities in Miami-Dade County.
Winner: Eye on Miami continues to labor hard in their efforts to get some attention paid to the abuse of the absentee ballot voting system that is allegedly regularly abused by South Florida politicians and their supporters. At a public hearing conducted in November, a Miami-Dade County commissioner went on the record as thanking Eye on Miami for their work and bringing the abuse to her attention so that she could lead the push for an ordinance that attached a penalty for such abuses. So many times bloggers complain about the system and accomplish nothing and it's rare that we effect change, which is exactly what Eye on Miami did in this case. That's big. And that's why "Rebeca Sosa Thanks Eye On Miami and We Thank The Commissioner" is deserved of this week's SFDB Post of the Week recognition.
'Til next time, people, keep on blogging!
