Just a few things for you in this morning's wrap up of the mainstream media feeds. Enjoy.
A- Herald: Boston who?
The Heat took a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals on Monday night with a 93-79 victory against the Boston Celtics at AmericanAirlines Arena. While last season’s postseason series between the rivals only lasted five games, Boston at least made Miami work for it. This year’s version of the Celtics — older, slower, limping and maybe still sucking wind from a seven-game series with the Sixers, barely made LeBron James and Dwyane Wade break a sweat in Game 1.B- Herald: They write letters.
Language barrierC- CBS4: I see a lawsuit coming and the end of the wall.
Re Julia Morrison’s May 19 letter, English speakers shut out of jobs: As a registered nurse with 24 years’ experience, certified in my specialty and out of work in Miami for the last 10 months, I agree that there is something wrong here.
In order to work and pay bills, I had to take a position 155 miles away from my home and husband. I have had offers from everywhere except Miami, receiving glowing compliments on my résumé.
As far as learning a new language, I never left my country, so why should I be forced to learn one in order to be able to be employable here? It’s unfortunate that this community has lost the likes of seasoned nurses.
