Have we reached the end of Leftover Weekend yet? On a more positive note, watched the Heat win last night at a sports bar in Lauderdale. Ray Allen is the Man. Here is your hot and fresh morning Sift.
A- Searching for Signs heartily agrees with a passage taken from a Wall Street Journal article arguing that Obama won the election because he maliciously portrayed Mitt Romney in a negative fashion.
In many ways, it still amazes that Obama could win by mastering the art of the false choice as outlined in points 1-5 above. But, alas, that’s the world we live in today.B- Artlurker tells us a little about the plans for the new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.
Relocating from its current site in the lush expanse across from Vizcaya, it will reopen downtown in 2015 as the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science in “Museum Park,” which will also house the new Pérez Art Museum Miami. Not only will it be bigger, more centrally located, and built with sustainable architectural practices – it will also be a place where art can live.C- Terns and pelicans, at Go Hydrology!
D- Another great assortment of South Beach life images from Hello, I'm Scott taken last night.
All three of us were dressed like it was February in New England, though. Each of us wearing winter coats. Ginger also had 37 layers of clothes on, underneath her coat. In this regard, we were nothing like tourists.E- South Florida Food and Wine spends a couple minutes with Andrea Sans-Araiza, pastry chef at Bourbon Steak Miami.
South Florida Food and Wine: What is your favorite dessert item to make?F- Eye on Miami thinks that the Herald shows a deliberate disdain for its readers.
Andrea Sans-Araiza: This time of year is probably my favorite because I enjoy making fall desserts. Apple, pumpkin and maple are some of my favorite ingredients to work with mostly because they work well in warm, mushy and indulgent desserts that are perfect for cooler weather.
The net effect? A sense of estrangement by the Marlins of its supporters, which isn't so different from what the Herald engenders among its long-time readers. The Herald's best work is tied to investigative reports that bloggers cannot perform (or might, if they were paid). It opens one's eyes, can lead to Pulitzers, and trigger change. But too often, the Herald seems to disdain its readership or paper over readers' complaints, just like the Marlins.
