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.

NYT's TimesCast video examines U.S. Senate races in Alaska & Washington, psychology of partisanship; what Miami Herald should've been doing YEARS ago!

1.) New York Times Seattle bureau chief William Yardley looks at the U.S. Senate race in Washington state between 18-year Democratic incumbent Patty Murray and Republican Dino Rossi.


I first met Murray in the fall of 1992 and chatted with her as she waited to speak with Charlie Cook of the eponymous Cook Political Report at the Roll Call newspaper office on Capitol Hill. From my p.o.v, she's been a real disappointment and not at all the reasonable 'Mom in tennis shoes' she portrayed herself as; Rossi likely had the governor's race stolen out from under him; Rossi will win on Tuesday in the land of Huskies, transportation nerds and insanely beautiful college coeds.

2.) NYT political reporter Michael D. Shear discusses the U.S. Senate tri-partite battle between defeated Republican incumbent-cum-write-in Lisa Murkowski, Republican Joe Miller and Democrat Scott McAdams -no relation to the ever-adorable Rachel, soon to star in a terrific new film -Morning Glory- according to my Left Coast Film Industry Friend. More on Rachel and the film later this week.

Cede Political Turf? Never! Well, Maybe.
