Florida Under Attack – Algae Invasion

Posted on | August 23, 2018 | No Comments

Red or green? Take your pick. Both colors of algae are devastating south Florida, infesting beaches on the Gulf coast, invading rivers and canals on the Atlantic side. All kinds of sea life are dying and humans are in jeopardy. Many businesses have closed, reservations canceled. The plague beginning in the spring could last well into November. Read more

Freedom for Dogs and Others

Posted on | August 15, 2018 | No Comments

Glenn Greenwald usually writes about the encroachments of the deep state on American freedom. But he’s also concerned about freedom from pain and desertion for dogs. He and his partner David Miranda rescue strays from the streets of Rio de Janeiro, where they live. They have a couple of dozen of their own and put many others up for adoption, mainly in the U.S. Read more

One Gone, One Free

Posted on | August 4, 2018 | No Comments

Another journalist, Reuben Pat, has just been murdered in Mexico, the eighth so far this year. At the same time, Mexican journalist Emilio Gutierrez has been freed from detention in the U.S. as he and his son await the decision to let them stay here or be sent back to near certain death in Mexico. Reporting on the Mexican drug cartels is close to a  suicidal act that gets scant attention in the U.S., where journalism is a much safer occupation. Read more

Eve in Florida

How many times must we be tempted? The fathers of Palm Beach may have decided once was enough. Yet here were the silken fingers of insidious Eve once again offering the poisoned apple to guileless husband Adam. Read more

War of Words

Posted on | July 17, 2018 | No Comments

Ever since words were invented, they’ve been used to attack as well as communicate. This reached a culmination of a kind in World War II, as Ted Lipien writes in his slim, incisive book “Divide and Conquer: The Story of Nazi Terror.” Hitler, a champion of the “big lie,” thought propaganda on top of troops was the key to victory. It worked to some extent in Europe but fell on deaf ears in America. The U.S. provided its own counter-propaganda against the Nazis, says Lipien, while at the same time succumbing to the still more subtle and destructive propaganda of an ally, the Soviet Union.

Targeting Americans

While celebrating her first wedding anniversary with her husband in Mexico City, Tatiana Mirutenko, 27, was shot and killed by a gunman on a motorcycle. His intended target was a barroom bouncer who was wounded in the shooting, but somehow he hit Tatiana as well and then escaped. Read more

The President Goes Fishing

Posted on | July 5, 2018 | 1 Comment

I left the desert of Arizona for the water of Florida, lots of water and a softer air. Left behind was the adventure of the border with stalwart ranchers up against drug cartels that are running Mexico and poisoning us.

I settled in the area of Stuart, a coastal town that manages to preserve much of old Florida, distinctive homes and stores that may date back to the early 1900’s and cannot have more than four stories in contrast to the high-rise glitz on the rest of the Atlantic coast. That’s the way its citizens like it, and they’re determined to keep it that way. Read more
