Tis the Season of Decay
With the end of summer now official, it is time to appreciate autumn in the swamp. The cooler nights are a welcome relief from the record breaking global warmthing. The anticipation of a bountiful tourist season prods us onward. Yet all is not well in this seaside oasis. Life in South Florida looks a drab austere when colored with the rusty palette of fall... and the predictable regressive groupthink.
Miami Beach is going headstrong with their embrace of Red-light Scameras. The blasted gizmos are being installed one at a time. One a day that is. These insidious eyes-in-the-sky are a blight on our quality of life and harbingers of Orwellian things here today. Wake up people and smell the extortion.

Down the Drain...
And for the latest twist of this bizarre tale of sleepy town:
Alas with the fall comes the realization that we should not cry over spoiled swamps, we should learn from Forest Gumps, keep an eye on the chumps.
