Up and at 'em. It's Saturday morning, readers. Let's check out what was going on in the South Florida blogosphere while you snoozed. Enjoy your morning Sift.
A- Go Hydrology! has your South Florida Moment of the Day.
B- One half of Eye on Miami is traveling in India and today compares that country's politics to Miami's.
Of local municipal politicians, our guide muttered, 'They don't do anything. Often, title to land outside the town is simply changed so that it is in their own name. Then they try to bring water and electricity and roads to the land they suddenly own.' Oh. So Miami, but our version doesn't switch titles to their own names in the dead of night. Big campaign contributors tied to the Growth Machine figure out ways to make elected officials work.C- Gun Free Zone shows us how gun owners in New York are interpreting new state laws requiring them to register certain weapons as an example of taking away their guns and violating their 2nd Amendment rights. And, of course, GFZ presents it in a way to imply that gun owners are ready to go to war over it...because, you know, that's what Ted Nugent says.
