Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Latest fey TV genius move "Sounds like slang for syphilis"

James Hibberd's The Live Feed -"Your daily jolt of TV industry buzz"- has long been one of my favorite entertainment websites to read, and Wednesday was no exception.
I caught up with James and read his take from Monday regarding the death-spiral move made by the top genius suit at NBC Universal Cable named Bonnie Hammer, who, to the dismay of actual viewers of The Sci-Fi Channel -which sometimes includes me- has decided to further destroy what little credibility remains there by changing its moniker to Syfy.
Really.

The first thing I thought of?
Sounds like a newly created category on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, MBTI, of which I'm an ENFP. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENFP

Ridicule hardly begins to describe what happens to TV exec Bonnie Hammer in the forums.
It's sort of like watching everyone taking swing-for-the-fences swipes at The Herald at various blog sites and their own forums.
Sometimes, people really hit the sweet spot and connect!

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016
