Let's hope this rain gets out of here soon so we can enjoy our weekend and all the things I have listed for you in the Weekend Widget in the right sidebar. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Some Blogging Guy takes a stroll down Crazy Lane, makes a left on Demented Drive and winds up on Wacky Way to compose his latest post.
American blood has been shed in a viscous coordinated attack and Obama has moved America into a position where she is running away with her tail between her legs.B- Blogging Black Miami has a great photo of Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho reacting to winning this year's Broad Prize.
Even Jimmy Carter would not have betrayed his country like this.
President Obama must be impeached, removed from office in the unlikely event he wins the election. If he does not win, he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law.
This is the character of the man in the White House. If you vote for him, you are voting for the death of America.
As the winner of the award that recognizes the large urban school district making the greatest progress in the country in raising student achievement, Miami-Dade will receive $550,000 in college scholarships for its high school seniors.C- On Two Shores pays tribute to "Cuban iconoclast" Eloy Gutierrez Menoyo, who passed away today at the age of 77, while Babalu takes the low road and mocks him [via Twitter]. From the former...
Cuban exiles have a name for those who act purely on principle no matter what, refusing to bend for politics, convenience or personal gain. They are called “verticales” or verticals. Well, in this exile where so many who define themselves as verticals don’t deserve it, Menoyo was the most vertical of verticales.D- If you're in the market for $1.5 million condos, Curbed Miami has the 411 on a new South of Fifth project on Miami Beach.
Each unit has a triple exposure, with private elevators, at least two balconies, either three or four bedrooms (not counting the dens), totally tricked-out appliances (built-in espresso machine anyone?), oversized showers, soaking tubs, etc. etc.E- Food for Thought has updated "The List" as to where you should be dining in South Florida.
Back in February, with some trepidation, I added a new feature to this blog: "The List" - a compilation of my own most frequently voiced responses to the question, "What are the best places to eat in Miami?" For reasons I explained back then, I've always struggled to name "favorites," as so much depends on mood, preference and appetite any given day.F- Salty Eggs has a load of photos from President Obama's rally in Delray Beach earlier this week.
G- Eye on Miami worries about their absentee ballot signature.
I didn't go to the post office. They routinely toss out enough absentees for bad signatures to have made Al Gore President. I might vote early. I don't want to drive to Doral and park a mile from the front door (not enough parking there). I wish I could cross out the signature and do it over.
