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. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

re 6/6/10 MondayNote.com: Mediocrity is king; Katharine Weymouth and the Future of Newspapers on NPR's Diane Rehm Show at 11 a.m.

Came across this excellent piece of analysis at MondayNote.com while looking for something else. Isn't that the way it always goes late on Sunday nights?

Mediocrity is king



My favorite excerpt from above:
By allowing such a degradation in its premium advertising space (a home page is supposed to be just that), the HuffPo acknowledges that its content is, in fact, cheap. It therefore admits that volume, rather than targeting or relevance, drives the value of its content.

Of course, I like that because it tends to correspond to my intuition about the HuffPo, but... on the other hand, I actually read Arianna's book on Picasso when it first came out over 20 years ago, when she had a very different persona.

FYI: On NPR's Diane Rehm Show on Monday at 11 a.m.

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
