I'm getting ready to watch the last debate which I think has the potential to be a real snoozer. We'll see. I'll be commenting a little at @sfdb if you want to follow along. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Critical Miami begins an open discussion about customer support with Amazon and shares it with all of us.
B- Phun with photoshop...at Random Pixels.
C- Obalesque bids farewell to George S. McGovern.
So bon voyage, George. Thanks for the courage and the leadership. Thanks for the inspiration. Sorry we were too damn dumb to listen then, and to learn now. You understand. You were all about peace. May you rest in it.D- The Cuban Triangle discusses the latest false rumor that Fidel is dead.
On Saturday, Wilfredo Cancio examined how this story, which has sprung up several times in recent years, took off last week in a new context where anyone can publish anything immediately and worldwide on social media. In fact, on the day that the story is true there will be no scoop, Cancio writes, because “it will be known when Cuba announces it officially.” I agree. I also agree that, as he writes, it will mark a turning point in Cuban history but “whenever it comes, it will be less and less transcendent for the course of the country.”E- Be on the lookout for the Weinermobile, says The305.Com.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the iconic vehicle is coming to Miami this week. Visitors to the Wienermobile will be able to take pictures, play fun games, and receive our collectible Wiener Whistles at all of the events in the area.F- Eater Miami has the 411 on the new Lincoln Road sushi place.
G- What does the new Louis Vuitton store in the Design District look like? Curbed Miami has the answer.
H- The Catholic Church is getting disgustedly more involved in politics, as South Florida Lawyers shows us.
I- Eye on Miami whips out some photos and wonders if a candidate for vice mayor of Palmetto Bay is getting too aggressive with some mangroves.
