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.

Sarah Tressler's savvy Magna Cum Laude brain + taut stripper's body + self-evident journalism hypocrisy = Internet story that will not only NOT die, but which is being turned into a book. That will be a best-seller! Sarah will get the last laugh.


CNN video: Sarah Tressler is suing the Houston Chronicle for firing her as a reporter for not previously disclosing on employment form that she's also a former exotic dancer. May 11, 2012.

In the future, perhaps women who used to be news reporters will be turned down for jobs because reporting is, as Renata Adler insinuated, essentially an immoral exercise, because telling a story is essentially, choosing which lie to share.
But for now, at least in Houston, it's newspapers who look down their noses at the Magna Cum Laude grads they hire as reporters who strip because the newspapers are so damn cheap.

Angry Stripper Sarah Tressler Now Published Author

All Sarah Tressler ever wanted was to be a journalist, and now she’s the published author of Diary of an Angry Stripper.
Composed entirely of blog posts about her tales of moonlighting as an exotic dancer in Houston’s gentlemen’s clubs, Tressler’s tell-all book is receiving national attention after the Houston Chronicle fired her from her job as a high society reporter, and sparked a scandalous controversy for both her and the newspaper.

As you might imagine with any story involving titillation, story-telling and beautiful women, the British news media are all over this story:

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. :-(
