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.

Must-see TV today: Humphrey Bogart in Deadline U.S.A. at 4 p.m. on TCM

"A big-city editor brings down a mobster, saves his newspaper and re-unites with his ex-wife."

"That's the press, baby. The press! And there's nothing you can do about it. Nothing!"

Deadline U.S.A. may well be the best Bogart film that most people have STILL not seen for themselves, so do yourself a favor before leaving for work Wednesday morning and make a point of setting your VCR or DVR or whatever electronic gadget you schedule your TV life with, and make a point of recording this film Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m. on Turner Classic Movies, DirecTV 256.

I've probably seen this film about a dozen times by now and because I've seen all of Bogart's other films SO many more times, this is still one that surprises me with each new viewing as I find myself noticing things for the first time.


Do you know the difference between a journalist and a reporter?

Jim Backus will explain it to you at a bar full of veteran reporters who've heard the same joke for decades, but who still laugh each time it's told.

I came across this short trailer for an upcoming PBS documentary called Stop the Presses: The American Newspaper in Peril while looking for something else a few weeks ago. It's already been shown in some TV markets but I don't recall it being in South Florida yet.

Hope it'll be as good as the one on the LA Times last year, even though that one started trailing off a bit towards the end, probably because there was no hero riding in on a white horse at the end -with $$$. If you don't blink, there's also a few seconds of Anders Gyllenhaal of the Herald speaking. It was uploaded on June 2nd.

#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. ��
