On the downside into the Weekend, readers. Yay. Hope you all had a great day. I'm going to serve up this evening Sift a little early. Enjoy.
A- Trader Joe's is coming to Pinecrest, says Curbed Miami.
B- Go Hydrology! has some hydrological graphs that show some serious rainfall this year.
C- Carlos Miller's trial gets continued.
My trial this morning was continued for a later date because the Miami-Dade Police Department, specifically Major Nancy Perez, refused a court order to provide my attorney with the basic Standard Operating Procedures dictating how police should interact with the media.D- Chick-fil-a changes its tune and decides to "respect all people," according to Bark Bark Woof Woof. What a concept.
When the issue was brought up in court today, Perez told the judge that she would have gladly provided him a copy, except that he was refusing to pay the $17 fee.
My attorney, Arnold Trevilla, said he was never told there would be a cost and was never sent an invoice, which is the customary practice a government agency goes through when fulfilling public records requests.

[He also likes to construct hilarious paragraphs that affirm the "opposition's" opinion of him.]
Still they will continue to have us pegged as crazy and ready for the revolution. My only hope is that they never take things (with an accomplice Government) to the point where our lives are at stake as for whatever happens next will be on their heads.F- Sounds like going to a South Beach club is God's way of telling you that you have too much money...at Miami Beach 411.
1) You only get the table for as long as the bottle lasts. Even though you and your buddies may have thrown down a mortgage payment for a couple of 1-liter bottles, once those are gone so is your table. So if you had the gross naiveté to think that money entitled you to a table all night, think again. Prepare to shell out another 1000 for more liquor, or get the boot.
