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.

Shouldn't actual "facts" matter to journalists even in their Tweets, or, is it every man for themself to get Followers? Just saying...

Below is a copy of a pithy email about last night's GOP presidential debate in South Carolina that I sent out to some media friends and acquaintances across the country last night.
Likely, during a timeout of a college football game I was watching.

That is, unless it was while I was watching Four Weddings and a Funeral for about the 50th time. 
What can I say, I've always been a Hugh Grant fan, and he's been in three of my favorite films, the aforementioned Four Weddings, Notting Hill, and Love Actually, all written by Richard Curtis, who directed the latter.
Coincidence? I don't think so.

My last post mentioning Hugh Grant was on September 28, 2010, in a post titled, Gloria Estefan climbs windows during Dolphins-Jets game, but Hugh Grant was The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain. Winner: Grant!

(For some people, I sent a screen grab of the Twitter section in the right-hand column of the LA Times website, for others, I just copied and pasted. The latter seemed easier to post here so it'd be legible.)

It's self-explanatory:

Just saw this on LA Times website.
If someone is a professional journalist, shouldn't facts matter even in your Tweets, or is it every man for themselves?
Really, tweeting about something you think you might have heard on a streaming event?
It was on TV to make it easy and accessible, so who's watching the streaming version?

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and 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

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
