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.

This is when I really, really miss Peter Jennings

July 7th, 2009
3 p.m.


Don't know how it is wherever you are in the world,
but here in South Florida, there seem to be more than
a normal amount of glitches and dead spots on ABC's
telecast this afternoon of the Michael Jackson memorial,
especially compared to the CNN telecast.
Talking over the action so many times!

ABC News is my favorite of the four networks, and I prefer
Charlie Gibson's newscast to the others, but it was only
a few minutes into their broadcast this afternoon when it
really hit me that this was exactly the sort of situation
where Peter Jennings always out-shined everyone,
with his ability to weave a story together in ways both
profound and spot-on.

Always, always coming up with that great thought or
bit of insight that would really hit you where you lived,
and stay with you long after the telecast was over.
Which, of course, is why I always watched him.

I never missed Peter Jennings more than today.

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 2016
