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.

You don't have to be Roy Black or Gerry Spence, you just have to care: Barney for the defense, your Honor
Barney for the defense
Rafe Hollister (Jack Prince) sings Lonesome Road, Andy Griffith on guitar (1963)
A Mayberry State of Mind/AMSOM is the online chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club
Not surprisingly, The Andy Griffith Show was my favorite TV show as a small kid growing-up in mid-1960's Memphis, which was far, far away from a Mayberry existence before we left in 1968 for South Florida, three months after the MLK assassination there, and the subsequent riots and curfews, which I still remember.
The Tennessee National Guard drove their Army tanks right past our apt. complex at night on their way downtown as everyone in our neighborhood, young and old, watched quietly from the sidewalk, utterly transfixed, almost breathless, unsure of what the next day would bring.
