Is tomorrow really Thanksgiving? I've got to find something that slows life down a little bit. Here's your Wednesday morning Sift.
A- Worst Pizza gives two out of eight slices to Papa John's on the FAU campus.
As you can imagine, the pizza at this Papa John’s in the Florida Atlantic University Food Court was sub par. The cheese tasted processed, the dog soggy, and the sauce average at best. I do not think I would personally ever eat there again, even if it is the only pizzeria located there.B- It's Blind Tastes' turn to give us their impressions of the Hurricane Sandy Relief Dinner that recently held at The Dutch.
C- Political Cortadito shares some thoughts about yesterday's swearing in ceremonies in Miami-Dade County.
There were a whopping eight people sworn in during the Miami-Dade Mayor and Commission installation Tuesday. But, while everyone graciously thanked their staff and friends, and their families and supporters, only two speakers really shone: Commissioner Dennis Moss and freshman Commissioner and former State Rep. Juan C. Zapata.D- PhinPhanatic says fans are giving up on quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
For a lot of fans, it’s easier to whine, bitch, and moan, because it makes you feel better. It puts you on the “I was right all along” road if things don’t inevitably work out, and if they do, then most simply say, “hey that wasn’t me! I supported him all along. I only pointed out that he struggled”. The fact that the home stadium is still blatantly empty can be immediately traced to the Dolphins record, lack of confidence in the team, and the inability of the Dolphins to draw a face to the franchise.E- Salty Eggs lists their five favorites from the Miami Book Fair International.
But when it’s good, it’s really good. And there were definitely some of those great moments at the Miami Book Fair this weekend. Authors Martin Amis and Irvine Welsh, for instance, could read from the dictionary late into the night and keep me begging for one. more. word.F- Bark Bark Woof Woof provides some thoughts on the departure of Allen West.
There have been a lot of men and women who have been elected to office from both parties that did very little to earn their salary or their re-election. Mr. West, though, did something very few of them did: he further tarnished the reputation of Congress, which I didn’t think was possible.
