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, Europe 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.

Great Neil Patrick Harris recap as 2009 Tony Award telecast bows out
After all my years of watching The Tonys, over and over,
with good hosts and bores and the just in-betweens
just waiting for... well something, to capture a mood
perfectly, it happened Sunday night.

Shout out to the Signature Theatre back in Arlington,
and Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer and Managing
Director Maggie Boland for winning the Tony for
outstanding regional theater.
The NBA Finals? That's funny.
Why would I waste two-and-a-half perfectly good
hours watching that, when as everyone knows, you
only have to watch the last two minutes of an NBA
game, which takes six minutes to slog through
There's nothing but nothing more boring in sports
than the intentional foul in the last two minutes of
an NBA game, finals or not, especially the way most
NBA players clank their crucial free throws.
I haven't watched more than 20 minutes of an
NBA game since the Heat beat the Mavericks for
NCAA Field Hockey, Lacrosse and Soccer on the
other hand... I'm there from beginning to end.
And to conclude... the original Browadway El Gallo,
Jerry Orbach singing a song that a former dramaturg
girlfriend of mine in D.C. used to play all the time
from The Fantasticks album, with us singing songs
from the cast album, with her as Luisa and me as Matt.
We even sang the songs on the way to and from
Oriole games in Baltimore, esp. on Sunday drives.
I recommend the Michael Ritchie feature film
version, though it's not for everyone.
That's when I first realized how scary talented
Jean Louisa Kelly was!

August 2016 update about above: As I could have predicted, once again, the fake candidate failed to file the appropriate paperwork and fee with the City of Hollywood, and so his name will NOT appear on ballot.

Which European country has the most attractive citizens?
As seen in my July 31st, 2013 blog post titled, "Which European country has the most attractive citizens?" Sweden won in a landslide with almost four times as many votes as second-place France, with Spain third and Norway fourth. Yes, seeing is believing!; Norwegian.com's non-stop flights from Fort Lauderdale to Oslo start in 4 months! :) http://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/boredpandacom-poll-of-europeans-asked.html
