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.

Ineptitude reminiscent of HB City Hall! WCBS-TV: Comedy Of Errors - Cameras Didn't Work At Newark Airport

WCBS-TV, New York
Comedy Of Errors: Cameras Didn't Work At Newark

Sources Tell CBS 2 That TSA Surveillance Cameras Were Inoperable At Time Of Terminal C Security Breach

TSA Apparently Didn't Know Number For Continental To Get Other Footage

It's a tale of shocking ineptitude: CBS 2 has learned a series of missteps unnecessarily added to the mayhem at Newark Liberty International Airport on Sunday. The six-hour delay stranded thousands of people, creating extreme crowding and chaos.

The mistakes made at the airport give new meaning to the term "domino effect." It was a cascading series of missteps that cry out for action.

The sign at the Transportation Security Administration screening post at Newark read: "Premises Under Constant Video Surveillance."

What is should add is: "If We're Lucky."

Ineptitude reminiscent of Hallandale Beach City Hall!

You know, the Broward city where the Police Chief,
Thomas Magill, actually shrugged and said at a 2009
HB City Commission meeting that the pitch black
public parking lot in front of City Hall AND the
Police Dept. HQ, which has been that way for a
good part of the past two years, wasn't that big a deal.

And the City Attorney, David Jove, just sits there
on the dais, dreaming of his pension, ignoring the
self-evident public safety and liability issues for the
city's taxpayers.

Who's their boss?
City Manager Mike Good.
That explains it.

Tonight, like last week, last month and last year,
three of the four parking lights closest to the public
entrance to HB City Hall have been out.
Much like they have been for the past six months,
and most of the past two years, but fortunately for
air travelers, the City of Hallandale Beach doesn't
have operational control of an airport!

#HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
