I'm sensing from what I'm reading in the blogosphere and what I'm hearing on TV and the radio that people are ready to move on from 9/11. Not forget, but move on. 10 years was apparently enough for some. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Hello, I'm Scott is still working through the loss of a loved one and channeling the emotions into something productive.
B- Transit Miami actually has some good things to report about Metrorail.
In nearly every Metrorail train car, one now finds that two sets of seats have been removed and, from the resultant additional space, there is now a much-needed area for standing passengers and bike and luggage storage.C- Gun Free Zone thinks that Americans were doing one of two things on 9-11.
The sad-funny part is that there were 2 kinds of people who day watching what was happening: The ones that were fidgeting and wondering what was next and what would become of them, and the those who went straight to their safes or closets or drawers, pulled out a gun and stood ready to face whatever unknown was coming.D- A few more businesses are moving into Midtown, according to Miami Urbanist.
E- On this solemn day, Babalu Blog [via Twitter] takes time to...angrily point fingers at Democrats for allowing it happen on George Bush's watch.
F- Curbed Miami wonders what will happen to the old Miami Today building on Brickell now that they've moved out.
G- South Florida Lawyers makes me laugh.
H- September's food and wine events are covered in the latest post from South Florida Food and Wine.
I- Discourse scrutinizes a Romney political mailing that he recently received.
See that hand? To me it looks like a white hand. The arm is ambiguously dark, but I at least saw it as white and shaded. The message it sends in this election when associated with an electoral mailer is that it’s Romney’s hand in the cookie jar. I don’t know if the designers of this ad even flirted with the idea of a black(er) limb, but at some point they’d stray too far into the ‘playing the race card’ territory. It would have been much smarter to use a different image.
