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.

So it's come to this? An online quarantine! U.S. Congress members and their legion of genius(!) staffers are placed in the penalty box by Wikipedia after months of intentional mischief & mis-edits that catches the attention of @CongressEdits. But it's not like local, county and state officials (and their staffers) are any different with their deliberate attempt at mis-direction, esp. in Florida and the use of Twitter

For an example of the curious self-editing and treatment of news from politicians in South Florida see this blog post from May 9, 2012 titled "The curious case of Broward County Comm. candidate Marty Kiar's Tweets, which, for me, are more revealing for what they DON'T say"
