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. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

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.



3.) Science Times writer Benedict Carey examines the psychology of partisanship.

Cede Political Turf? Never! Well, Maybe.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and 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 now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
