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.

Trust me, you don't want to be stuck in one of the RK Plaza strip center parking lots on Hallandale Beach Blvd. because of Secret Service/FHP/HBPD & HPD traffic shutdown for the motorcade for Vice President Biden like I was last year, trapped over near the Post Office for about a half-hour after mailing something to the nieces up in Maryland.
I thought Biden was supposed to be in Coral Gables or Miami Beach, but no...
Of course, when you live in the Washington, D.C. area, and don't have nearly the same gawker effect on pedestrians or drivers, the motorcades seem to move a lot faster, esp. the ones at night leaving The White House up 17th Street, N.W. or from the State Department.
