The SFDB Weekend Widget in the right sidebar is jam-packed with things to do this weekend so make sure you check it out. Let's get the day rolling with your morning Sift.
A- It's a good weekend for theater, according to South Florida Theatre Scene.
B- Suntanned Mumford reiterates his mission.
Suntanned Mumford has always had a point larger than itself. It’s a platform for my architectural criticism and urban criticism, chiefly on the topic of Greater Miami and South Florida. I do stray further, and I do talk about things besides the built environment, but my goal has only become more resolute: to create a dialogue in Miami where one hardly exists already.C- It's been a little harder to tell the wet and dry seasons apart lately as Go Hydrology! explains.
D- Bark Bark Woof Woof discusses the future of the Republican Party. Hint: they're only getting nuttier.
This latest iteration started back in the 1980's when Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson stirred up their minions and founded the Moral Majority (wishful thinking on both parts). They started out with school boards and city councils, moving up to the state house as the election cycles went on. They didn't have to run for Congress; they could work their ways in Lincoln and Jefferson City and Tallahassee, and occasionally they'd send one of their own on to the big leagues; Marco Rubio did not just step off the boat from Cuba and become the darling of the right wing as the Senator from Florida.
