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.

Washington Post's Dan Eggen serves up a delicious slice of hypocrisy re transparency: "Pro-disclosure groups often don’t disclose themselves"

Sunlight Foundation video: Washington's Lobbyist Fix -- The Advisory Committee on Transparency. March 16, 2011. I'm posting this year-old video because Dan Eggen is a panelist on a forum on the topic of transparency.

The only thing better this week than hot pizza and cold beer while watching the beginning of the NCAA basketball tourney on TV -unexpectedly being served-up some sweet hypocrisy on a silver platter!
More, please!

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. :-(
