The Miami Herald Gave Up...We Didn't. We are it on Saturday! Too bad for you.
When I wrote I didn't like Philip Levine 'way back when' because he used Slapp Suits (A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. The typical SLAPP plaintiff does not normally expect to win the lawsuit) my friends in Miami Beach called to yell at me. No one is mad at me now. I even got one sheepish apology and I didn't have to say "I told you so." They are hating that Wolfson/Levine PAC.
|I imagine he might say: I like doing SLAPP suits and TV Commercials with PAC money.|
Bascom Palmer did it's first bionic eye in Florida to provide provide partial sight to a Tampa woman. This is the first time the procedure was performed here in FloriDUH. I appreciate the significance of this, however, did the glasses have to be so damn ugly? I redesigned them for the manufacturer without interfering with the crap around and behind them. I just softened the bottom of the glasses so people wouldn't say: "Damn, that woman has ugly glasses!"

HOMESTEAD POLICE SHOOTING (Hudstead):
BARFABLE NEWS ON THE SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT:
Sugar barons or politicians (Rick Scott?) must have gotten to the South Florida Water Management District Board and read them the riot act. Miami Heiress Sandy Batchelor was the only one who could not be bought off. I am glad to see she is seeing first hand how ugly our politics are. The District that guards our water supply is running on a shoestring budget and had to lay off many on their science team. It is a crime. They voted nearly unanimously to keep the budget the same a few weeks ago. Yesterday they voted again. They voted to cut the budget..all but Sandy. According to the Miami Herald:
The decision marks the fifth year in a row the agency has bowed to pressure from Tallahassee to cut taxes, even as Everglades restoration picks up speed and sea rise projections predict more stress on the 16-county district.
The most evil stupid member is James Moran. He is the one that doesn't know we have an aquifer. He said:
“Since [the Everglades] is a statewide treasure, wouldn’t it be appropriate that the cost is shared statewide?” said board member James Moran, a Palm Beach County attorney, who has consistently voted to cut taxes.Well, stupid James, that is never going to happen. Educate yourself. You are a special taxing district: You can tax without asking anyone! They are already taking the money we voted for in a referendum to buy land and the State is spending it on OTHER things. David Guest of Earth Justice is suing, thank God.
Cindy Lerner, Mayor of Pinecrest - EYE'S HERO OF THE WEEK - wrote this letter before the reversal (what a difference a day makes):
|Mayor Cindy Lerner is our hero of the week!!|
