Papers Today

First off ….even Cuba knows that the internet is the quickest way to get the news out…..

Castro used the Cuban paper’s internet to announce his stepping down!

further access of using the internet….www.sunsentinel.com

Fighting to put the Founding Father’s online…

Historians want the public to have access to the writngs of our founding fathers…including the footnotes….imagine what you could find!

The price and the time will be worth it…for students, teachers and those who want a window into a world not available to most while they are only in print form!

More from the Sentinel …

Front and center….the lunar eclipse and the Marlin’s stadium….

At 10:01 pm Wednesday night the moon will be in a total eclipse you will not see again in North America until 2010!

If the sky is clear…which seems to never coincide with these events…. we’re told just look up…but if the full effect matters to you check out the South Florida Planetariums……info online.

Marlin’s Stadium … a sore subject in our home… living with a die-hard baseball fan … knowing the Marlins are a replacement for the Chicago Cubs…so you know disappointment in how the team plays is not a pre-requisite…. the stadium experience …priceless? Not so fast!

All that really needs to happen is a cover…to protect the team and the fans….easy right? Wrong!

It comes down to who makes the big bucks off the concessions!

So now we have a blue marlin looking structure…(looks that way from far away, in the abstract, with glasses off.)…just over the top!

Re-placing the Orange Bowl…(knew this was coming when the switcheroo with the college took place resulting in the leap to the present Marlin’s stadium)…..and a 515 million dollar price tag!

We hate the location….We dislike the rendering….and we know from past projects….the 515 will be a distant memory as it proceeds!

Guess we will have to re-think those season tickets….after all!

Speaking of flashback moments….in a post yesterday I mentioned that a form of POW bracelets are making a return…now in the Miami Herald Business section….www.miamiherald.com

Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Disney plan to revive their “House of the Future” at Disney in California.

We will get to retrace what thoughts of others were as they went through it a half century ago!It included hands-free phones,wall sized T.V.s and electric razors.

Disney will also be opening a new one…a 5000 square foot “smart house” fully computerized, touch screens etc…in store for us all.

Back to the Sentinel…

Vote on evolution…science?..theory?….new wording?….how ridiculous! First evolution… having been taught in Florida under the euphemism…”biological changes over time”…and those who wanted equal study to go to the non-science creationism….chose to re-name it “intelligent design.”… this all reminds me of other re-named places of learning and beyond…in high school seemingly overnight …gone was the school library….it was now called the IMC…..Informational Materials Center….but when you walked in the door…it was still the library!

More Sun-Sentinel….

Broward…fundraisers….big bucks…hotshots….statua quo!

Ishosvani Rodriguez reports ….Hollywood to vote on ethics workshop for officials and staff…ethics 101…at a cost 50 thousand bucks…would include the police, firefighters and be mandatory.

They also plan to discuss creating an ethics task force. The group would review city’s ethics rules and come up with new ones.

As we start off the new LBTS Commission tonight with an organizational meeting at 5 pm…perhaps a commissioner might want to look into ethics…with a budget…to make sure we too are informed and in line?

One last item…funky stuff going around in the realm of flu like illness….the Z-pak is in everyones medicine cabinet…and air kissing/handshakes are taking a rest…Purell seems to be increasing its sales!

Post Division
