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.

From adversity, a desire to inform: former Labour Home Secretary Jacqui Smith's investigative report on the porn trade airs on BBC Radio 5 Live today

Former Labour Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, caught up in the MP expenses scandal as a result of a bill submission, and forced to resign from the House of Commons, examines the adult entertainment industry and the wide variety of people "who make, watch and commentate on pornography."
To wit, "What is the impact of pornography upon society?"

Her one-hour special airs today on
BBC Radio 5 live at 21:30 G.M.T., which is 4:30 p.m. Eastern in the U.S. and Canada.

You can hear it hear here via

As most of you who come to the blog fairly often know, I'm a devoted 5 live listener, probably listening to it about 4-5 hours a day during the week.
I listen even more on weekends because of all the discussion of the Premier League, esp.
the 606 Football Phone-in, the U.K.'s biggest football chat show, which is always funny, interesting and fast-paced. It's a great show.

Naturally, from listening for so long, when the traffic reports come on, I almost vicariously hate all those lorry rollovers
on one Motorway or another I'm forever hearing about, as much as I hate the near-daily truck accidents on I-95 near the Hallandale Beach Blvd. exits, or the ones that were weekly taking place on the "Mixing Bowl" on I-95, south of Washington, D.C. when I lived up there.
So predictable, it almost wouldn't seem like a real traffic report if they didn't mention it!

It's always something and always right BEFORE I need to get on it!

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
