And here we go with the Thursday. The SFDB Weekend Widget is revved up and tracking in the right sidebar. Make sure you check it out this morning. In the meantime, enjoy your morning Sift.
A- The Upper Eastside Farmers Market has been operating through summer, according to Redland Rambles, who gives us a good idea of what to expect if we visit.
You can count on lots of fruit during the summer. In the last several months I’ve seen lychees, canistel, dragon fruit, mamey, longans, white sapote, Thai guava, jackfruit, starfruit, monstera, mango, avocado, mamoncillo, red guava, sugar apples (anon), bananas and plantains as they come in (and go out) of season. The market also offers eggs, callaloo, collards, both sweet and hot peppers, herbs, french sorrel, potatoes, carrots, eggplant, tomatoes, okra, squash, boniato, calabaza, snake gourd, allspice berries, katuk, honey, Art’s pickles and whatever else is available. You won’t go hungry in the summer!B- The South Florida Theatre Scene has the latest on theater in South Florida.
C- Bark Bark Woof Woof is just looking for an Obama win in November, he's looking for a big Obama win in November to send a message to the bigots on the Right.
Which brings me to my second point. The right wing needs to be seriously beaten, humiliated, shamed, chastised, denigrated, and bumfuzzled. And it has to be done with a determination and resolution that will leave no doubt as to who did it to them. None of this humble-in-victory crap; I want the winners to dance in the street and make the losers — especially Karl Rove and that little snot Ralph Reed — cry for their mamas.
