I'm still afflicted with this stomach bug. Hopefully, I wake up with a voracious appetite tomorrow. Here's your evening Sift.
A- Salty Eggs reviews what kind of man Allen West is and will always be.
Allen West may have lost the election, but he has already lost far more. He is not crazy. But he is a hateful, spiteful, vindictive clown, and even a cesspool like Washington is better off without him. This country faces serious problems, from unemployment and debt at home to multiple crises abroad, especially throughout the Middle East. And none of these problems will be solved by a man who believes that the jobless are lazy bums on the take and that Muslims are all just suicide bombers waiting to happen.B- Gun Free Zone posts an image of the cover of an insurrectionist book on making explosive devices because a guy with his girth and range time can still dream, can't he?
C- A new Whole Foods is coming to Miami-Dade and Curbed Miami shares an update.
D- South Florida Lawyers makes me laugh.
E- The perfect stocking stuffer, at The Miami Bike Scene.
F- PhinPhanatic picks up a bunch of awards at 9th Annual Web Weekend Awards that was held a couple weeks ago in Miami.
All in all, Phinphanatic.com was awarded Best Overall Site, Best Community Site, Best Fan Content, and Best News Site. And as I sit here in my little dank throw together office, I have all of you and all of them to thank.G- Find out which three Miami Food Trucks are in the Top 100 in the nation according to The Daily Meal, at Eater Miami.
H- Justice Building Blog issues an apology.
To the extent we engaged in piling on, mea culpa. These two lawyers, like our clients and like anyone, are entitled to a full and fair hearing before any final conclusions are reached. We are ever mindful that this humble blog is widely read and that people's reputations are at stake. Before this controversy, Michael Tein and Guy Lewis enjoyed sterling reputations in the legal community. Reputations that were well earned. To that end we pledge to be more discerning in our coverage of this and other cases. We do no wrong by re-printing allegations in the Herald. But we violate our own DNA by jumping to conclusions not supported by the evidence.I- Get your Thanksgiving Day plans together at South Florida Food and Wine.
