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.

Seriously, could reporter Tomas Kvarnkullen be more low-key?
He's no Edward R. Murrow, that's for sure! But then who is?

Sophie, hate to say I told you so but I told you the other day that the weather was going to get crummy! And now a storm is coming and it looks like they're going to have gale force winds in
Skåne. Looks like a good time to see a new film.
