The week is moving along pretty quickly. We're already at Hump Day. I might have lunch out on South Beach today [I've got 4 restaurant possibilities lined up] so if you see me say hello. *smile* Here's your morning Sift.
A- You can always count on the Republican Party to display large amounts of hypocrisy on Wednesdays...or any other day for that matter, as Bark Bark Woof Woof notes in his latest post.
B- Obalesque maintains that children should be able to detect a photoshopped image when they see one and if they don't then tough cookies.
If kids are too damn dumb to figure out that the photos and movies they’re looking at are highly modified and idealized and basically fake, they deserve every bit of rotten self-esteem they harbor.C- Go Hydrology! wonders about the wide disparity in rainfall totals for Fort Myers and Naples.
Along with the piece of paper the same interpretive ranger informed me of a meteorologist from Florida International University (FIU) who months earlier had alluded to a mysterious rain band that rain across the state from Ft Myers to West Palm Beach, but did not include Naples, and thus explained the lack of rain to the south.D- The Green Parrot Bar announces that Sweat Records will be hosting a January meeting of The Green Parrot Bar Ukulele Association in Miami.
E- Eye on Miami claims they have found an "excellent" pizza place in Fort Lauderdale.
I had it at Franco & Vinny's. It has been in business since 1971. I ate the pizza so fast I forgot to take a picture of it. It was the correct color, red with some white showing through, but not too much sauce - it was just right. The crust was tasty (we asked for thin crust) and crispy: two requirements.
