Wow. So that was a quick weekend, wasn't it? Here's your evening Sift.
A- Your only in South Florida moment of the day, at Bark Bark Woof Woof.
B- Was this Anthony Fasano's last season as a Dolphin, wonders Phin Phanatic.
C- Aviary photos at Nikon Miami.
D- South Florida Classical Review checked out pianist Yefim Bronfman’s performance with the New World Symphony.
The concert opened with Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini, a rarely heard tone poem inspired by Dante’s portrayal of a noblewoman and her illicit lover in hell. The performance seemed underpowered, particularly in the first few minutes, a musical depiction of hell, where the wild, swirling music came off as more trudging than diabolical. But the love theme in the violins and winds was full of restlessness and yearning, and the performance gained drive and power as it drove to its dramatic, grim ending.E- The Reid Report posts an MSNBC discussion on Republicans dragging their feet on aid for Hurricane Sandy victims.
Meeks called his GOP colleagues “mean spirited,” but he could just as easily have called them hypocrites. Because not only are New York and New Jersey donor states, putting much more into the federal treasury than they take out of it, unlike southern states, who have been on the federal dole for decades … they also have routinely given money to southern and western (read Republican) states when they have been in need. And people like Paul Ryan have been only too happy to help themselves to federal aid when their states and districts needed it.
