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.

Reviewing the 'collar bomb' hoax ordeal of Madeleine Pulver in Mosman, N.S.W., and the ransom demands; clues in James Clavell's novel Tai-Pan?

Network TEN News video: Victorian Police Commissioner Kel Galare explains what the night may have been like for those involved in the Madeleine Pulver case.
Her father, William Pulver, is the former CEO of Nielsen NetRatings in New York and is now the CEO of software company Appen Butler Hill in Sydney. August 4, 2011. http://youtu.be/jrAN6ec5fiE

When I first heard about this despicable situation, I thought back to this case, which, coincidentally, had been mentioned at length in the Sunday NY Post I'd bought and later read over at Panera Bread on Sunday afternoon while listening to the Marlins game on the radio.

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
