Top of the Monday morning to you. Let's get your morning Sift on. Enjoy.
A- We're almost there, says Bark Bark Woof Woof.
And we are about to decide whether or not the election of a black man was just a one-time thing; a revulsion against an incompetent and misguided administration, or an actual course correction in America’s journey.B- The Reid Report says it's all about Old America and New America.
We’ll know in forty-eight hours, but as for me, ever the optimistic cynic, I am cautiously hopeful.
One America — call it “Old America” — is overwhelmingly white, mostly older and male, but also full of married, suburban women. It is increasingly conservative and sour on many of the socioeconomic innovations of the 20th century, from anti-poverty programs to freely available birth control and legal abortion. Old America worries that the nation’s generosity is being abused by layabouts and illegal immigrants. It is worried about debt. Well, Democrat-created debt, anyway.C- Carlos Miller finds a cameraman who is more annoying than he is.
D- Arterpillar posts lots of opportunities for South Florida artists.
E- Salty Eggs explains one very important reason to vote for Obama.
One thing that is close is the presidential race. Way beyond comfort levels. So before you cast your vote for Jill Stein, Roseanne Barr, Mickey Mouse or whoever, I humbly ask that you consider the “sick vote.”F- You can now vote for the Burgie Awards at Burger Beast.
For me, this election is not about party or ideology. I’m simply looking out for my future, and hoping the only life preserver I’ve got isn’t yanked away by other people’s misunderstanding.
G- Go Hydrology! wonders whether daylight savings time affects the cypress in the swamp.
H- Obalesque makes me laugh.
I- Post-game Dolphins game analysis at Phin Phanatic and Beached Miami. From the former...

This loss was clearly on the coaches who failed to put a prepared team on the field.J- Miamism posts their monthly analysis of the real estate market for select Miami-Dade neighborhoods.
If you are selling, you fit into 2 categories, the realist that will look at closed comparables and will price your home accordingly, and the dreamer who thinks your house is superior than the rest and will grossly over price. If you fit into the 2nd category, please don’t even call us, we’re in the business to sell properties, not dream about selling them.
