A- Eye on Miami and Political Cortadito have some thoughts on the ongoing absentee ballot fraud investigation in Hialeah. From the former...
Obviously putting two looney Hialeah ladies, trying to make a buck, in jail is not going to do any of us much good. One lady is in her 70's and the other is said to be disabled. What we really need to get is the people HIRING these boleteras. The ones that are PAYING for the ballots.B- Man or Maniac? continues his examination of the Mormon religion.

E- Gun Free Zone has got the Aurora shooting all figured out.
These type of shooters are not precise planners with rational train of thoughts but untrained individuals with a Hollywood knowledge of how firearms work and what can they do and little on discipline to do a thorough research. In their minds, a plan is prepared to perfection, no variations will happen and the desired reward will come. They probably have not made plans for after the event other tan basking in the “glory” of attention. But if somebody interferes with their plan, everything goes to hell as they did not prepare for armed resistance and contingency plans were never in their minds. In my opinion, the moment the Dumb Clown started to feel the impact of bullets all over his body, his attack would have collapsed, he would probably made a bee line for the emergency/exit doors and leave as fast as he could or give up entirely.F- Salty Eggs reviews John Waters appearance in Fort Lauderdale this past weekend and includes a bunch of photos.
Of course, though, the highlight of the evening came afterwards, when Waters himself appeared to a standing ovation before he even uttered a word. “You know you’re old when you get a standing ovation without doing anything,” he said. The next hour or so comprised a performance — or rather, an updated reprisal — of his 2006 one-man show, This Filthy World. The “show” was more of a nonstop riff bordering on standup comedy, with biographical anecdotes interlaced with sardonic, often outlandish commentary on pop culture.G- Curbed Miami has the details of a rumor that involves Genting and the Dade Heritage Trust and the Miami Herald Building.
H- Coconut Grove Grapevine reports in from the Dog Days of Summer event that was held on Sunday at The Barnacle.
The dogs were all a lot of fun and they all seemed to get along with each other. In other words, there were no dog fights the whole day. There were hot dogs for sale, but we opted for the delicious burgers that The Barnacle always has for sale at their many events.
