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.

Sorry! Devastating blog post on lying, back-stabber Alexander Lewy to be delayed for a few days

Due to other pressing matters, namely,
the Diplomat LAC project coming before
the Broward County Commission on
Tuesday afternoon, my devastating blog
-complete with photos and video-
that I had
planned on running today,
which I think would have
effectively put
the lie to the smug self-serving
lies, serial
mis-statements and absurd
and claims of experienced
Alexander Lewy, will be,
necessarily, postponed for a day or so.

But I know you won't be disappointed when
finally see it.

Hallandale Beach Blog's biggest
problem with this forthcoming blog post on

has not been with what to put in,
but rather,
what telling and embarrassing
anecdote about
him and his deceptiveness
and self-serving
nature to leave out,
on account of time and space -and repetition.

I'll mention it again in the future but just to give
you some idea of his out-of-proportion sense
self-importance and willingness to lie at the
of a hat, consider what I heard from a
person who
is greatly admired and respected
in this county,
even by people who may often
disagree with this

Asked in late February at a public meeting
or not he was running for a seat on
the Hallandale
Beach City Commission this Fall,
Lewy said "No."

Yet according to his own weird Facebook
campaign site, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Alexander-Lewy/34138291835
where fidelity to the truth is not a virtue,
it's clearly written in the top left that

"Alexander submitted paperwork to run
for City
Commissioner on January 11, 2010."

And he continues to claim he's running.
But when asked about it six weeks later, he lied.

Alexander Lewy

My point?

Well, ask yourself this simple question, which
volumes on his chronic logrolling and
to be straight with people.

Lewy is unwilling to be honest and is incapable
of telling the truth about whether or not he's
even running for office, something for which
there's no logical upside or advantage to him
to lie about, what makes you think he will be
forthright with you on an issue you genuinely
care about?

Sometimes a person's character is most vividly

revealed in a moment of genuine crisis, which
is what compelled John F. Kennedy to write
-with Ted Sorenson?- Profiles in Courage,
so he could better come to understand how

these particular individuals he had chosen
American history had made the particular
choices and
decisions they had, often at great
personal risk
and professional reputation.

There's a reason that book won the Pulitzer
and why those sorts of basic questions
to greatly interest us today, since
love to claim that they respect
even if they disagree with
them, but finding actual
proof that that's true
is always elusive.

But sometimes, it's in someone's complete
to be honest in answering a very
simple question that
someone's character
or lack thereof- is revealed.

Such is the case here, as Alexander Lewy's
untruthful answer shows what sort of person
he is -NOT the sort of person I want to see
any degree of power, and certainly NOT
to make public policy decisions
that will greatly
affect this city and its future.
And ours.

It's not too much to insist on honesty in candidates,
and by that simple measure,
Alexander Lewy
has proven himself NOT QUALIFIED.

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.

Hej #STHLM, jag saknar dig, hejdå. So wish I was there RIGHT NOW!

New this year: you!

New this year: you!
Close-up photo of the cute head-turning window display I snapped in 2013 at the Apotek Hjärtat -Sweden's largest independent pharmacy chain- located at Ringvägen 113, near the Skanstull T-bana in Södermalm, Stockholm. Sign reads, "Årets nyhet: du! Ett helt nytt och obrukat år är här. Just nu känns det lite lättare att välja om, förändra vanor och bryta gamla mönster. Vi hjälper gärna till. Du vill, du kan, du törs!' (New this year: you! A brand new and unused year is here. Right now it feels a little easier to choose, change habits and break old patterns. We're happy to help. You want to, you can, you dare!) Sounds like good advice that I ought to be following, too! January 12, 2013 photo by South Beach Hoosier.© 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved

The colder and snowier it got in Stockholm, the more this simple ad seemed like genius. Sometimes, you don't have to reinvent the advertising wheel. When you're a travel agency and it's cold and snowing, make your target audience think of summers and traveling to an inviting warm beach. Above, one of the many Sistaminuten.se display ads I saw on the side of pay phones throughout Stockholm. This one was located on Ringvägen, across the street from the Åhléns Dept. store (with the Hemköp grocery store in the basement that I frequented) west of busy Götgatan and the Skanstull T-bana, the southern commercial heart of trendy and fun Södermalm.

More travel advertising in Stockholm

More travel advertising in Stockholm
Speaking of advertising, only two blocks from the wonderful 4trappor B&B I stayed at in Södermalm, Stockholm on my trip -and also located on Ringvägen- were two more display ads promoting travel. The one in the distance is for SAS, Scandinavian Airlines Systems, which I flew on to Stockholm, and the one in the foreground, on a public telephone booth, is the "Holiday is where the Heart is" ad campaign for VING.

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
