I'm flying here because I'm on deadline and have family errands to run, but very quickly:
Anthony Man is taking over as political writer at the Sun-Sentinel. He's packed up his bags in Palm Beach County and moved down to Broward. I've known about it for a while, but haven't had the time to do any work on it. One thing I've heard is that Man won't be doing a column right off the bat. Guess he's going to ease into it. Everything I've seen from Man indicates to me that he's a solid reporter and my first impression is that it's a good decision. Congratulations, Anthony.
Taking over for Man as political writer in Palm Beach County is Josh Hafenbrack, so congratulations to him as well. Josh is going to be on Barry Epstein's radio show tomorrow (Friday) morning at 10 a.m. I know because I'm going to be following him up on the show, which airs on WWNN 1470 AM.
In addition, I've been instructed to jabber on the Steve Kane Show, which is also on 1470, only from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. They are going to discuss the Deerfield Beach imbroglio starring Mayor Al Capellini. You know the one where the mayor was fronting what appears to be an illegal nightclub opened by a convicted cocaine kingpin. Pretty standard, really. That discussion will start at about 7 with Elgin Jones and I'll probably get on there at about 8. Probably talk up the same topic on Epstein.
