I can't recall another stretch of rain in April like we've had these past few days. Maybe Go Hydrology! can help us out with the stats on that one. Lots going on in the South Florida blogosphere today so get comfortable and let's get into your evening Sift.
A- When it comes to torture, the U.S. is pretty much doing what it wants, according to this post from Discourse.
B- After almost two months away, Brickell Life is back and tells us what we can expect from the new Miami trolley service.
We actually took the opportunity to ride the trolley on Saturday and you know what, it works. Plus, it's free. You can expect a trolley to roll by your stop once at least every 15 minutes and it gets you where you need to go in air conditioned comfort and style. We went from Brickell Key all the way up to Margaret Pace Park to have lunch with some friends who live in the one of the new buildings near there. The ride was efficient, clean, fast and it sure beat sitting in traffic and finding a place to park.C- Obalesque makes me laugh.
D- Seriously, I give up on what influences Worst Pizza's rating system these days.
Not extremely great quality by for the money I will not complain too much about the taste, since $4.79 doesn’t make me think I am getting the highest quality to begin with. I didn’t like that on this visit they had no napkins on the table, so I had to go back up to the counter to ask for them.E- South Florida restaurateur David Manero [BurgerFi, DeVito's] is being accused by former business partners of some pretty serious criminal activity, according to Eater Miami.
F- Florida Keys Girl didn't have a very good experience at Yard House at Gulfstream Park.
When my salad arrived, it was not the Caesar I had ordered, but rather a seared tuna salad with some sort of Asian slaw. It looked okay, but not good enough to keep. A few minutes later I got the Caesar originally ordered. The tuna was rare and did not look particularly good. But now I was on my second salad and, despite the fries, was pretty hungry, so I gave it a shot. The tuna was just not fresh.G- Your South Florida Moment of the Day, courtesy of South Florida Lawyers.
H- What's the difference between Democrats and Republicans? Salty Eggs has some of the answers.
Taken in total, studies such as these have begun to paint a picture that liberalism tends to foster free thought and attract people who value reason over faith, rationality over rigid dogma. To liberals, these are ideas that have already largely been taken at face value. One of the problems liberals and conservatives immediately run into when talking about politics is the nagging suspicion on the part of conservatives that liberals have a sense of smug superiority, a sense that they are smarter and more grounded in reality than their conservative counterparts. The problem on the liberal side is that conservatives are correct in this assumption.I- Annush on the Causeway created some "special needs" delights for the recent Food Blogger's Bake Sale and files her report on this past weekend's event.
It was in this spirit that I agreed to join some of Miami’s Food Bloggers, food writers, and chefs at the Food Blogger Bake Sale this past Saturday. It was a good cause that I thought would give me the opportunity to create yummy non-traditional treats (ie- gluten-free, vegan, sugar free).J- There's a Spanish language reality series coming to television that features Miami's food trucks, according to the Burger Beast.
