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.

ABC News video: Diane Sawyer tours 'Nightwatch,' the U.S.'s high-tech 'Doomsday' plane capable of surviving a nuclear attack -sorry, no window seats!

'Doomsday Plane' Would Save President and Joint Chiefs in Apocalypse Scenario,

By Michael Murray, June 7, 2011


I meant to post this interesting video two weeks ago after seeing this when it first aired on the ABC Evening News with Diane Sawyer, but after saving the embed info in Draft on my email account, I forgot about it.

A week later, I saw the Swedish version of it while perusing Aftonbladet's website
and their WebbTV page, so I decided then to go ahead and post both of them so that you could see what the latter emphasizes.

Just about everything as it turns out, but you also get a kee sense of how much the people in Sweden know about what's compelling news video here in the U.S., but when was the last time you saw a video segement of a foreign TV network news that wasn't BBC or ITN on U.S. TV?
I mean besides here on the humble blog?

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 2016
