Film: Sadistic Nyuks and the Newbie Mom

My first exposure to The Three Stooges happened in the eighties, when I caught several of their shorts on TBS. I quickly learned to change the channel anytime they aired. Why would I waste my time with their sadistic brand of numbskull slapstick? (What can I say? I was more of a Little Rascals fan.) [...]

Drink a Latte, Change the World By Linda Mooney Okay, maybe not the world, but your surroundings. Actually, you don’t even have to drink coffee, or tea, or even like the sight and idea of a Starbucks. If fact, you could be the anti-corporate-local-coffeehouse hipster across the street riding free on their internet–and you can [...]

Politics: Marco Rubio, Class Dweeb

The ’70s were a very frightening time.  Jimmy Carter was president.  [Audience laughter, then applause.]  And we had a president who lied to the American people who was almost impeached before he had to resign.  And most troubling of all, we had to overcome disco [more laughter] and bell bottoms, and the Bee Gees.” [From [...]

News: Visual Pollution Looms Over Miami

By Linda Mooney It’s hard to believe that a metropolis named “America’s Cleanest City” just four years ago by Forbes magazine, partly for its vast green open spaces and visual aesthetics, and which relies so heavily on tourism thanks to this status, would consider such a thing, but the day has come. On Thursday, April [...]

News Commentary: Is it About Time That the Federal Government Take Over?

By Alejandro Arce It is tiring and appalling to read almost every day regarding the irregularities, to say the least, of the monies to be allocated for the redevelopment of one of the ugliest and poorly managed Convention Center which appears in the Miami Herald today.
