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.

11 films of 1 Icon: Eleven films starring Gregory Peck, one of America's most-respected and admired actors when American movies, more than anything else, shaped the world's opinion of the content of the American character, making him an unofficial Ambassador of America's Moral Conscience.

In almost every one of his films, regardless of genre, regardless of what directing great was calling the shots on the set, while his sheer elegance may've been the first thing you noticed, it was always his ability to show an inner thoughtfulness, a certain kind of inner strength and purpose, moral clarity, and a willingness to fight for basic principles and concepts of fair play and equality that made audiences around the world root for him, regardless of the odds.

Me in the Summer of 2016

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. :-(
