This year's list of our Dirty Dozen covers a gamut of South Florida marauders, bent on making your life miserable -- or at least more mediocre -- in pursuit of personal gain. Rick Scott and Allen West are old standbys, but we have several newcomers to the list: Pain bros Jeff and Chris George, teachers' union president Pat Santeramo, the organizers of the doomed Langerado Music Festival, and more.
While the team of masterminds assembling your New Times was careful as always to identify the zeitgeist of apathy around Broward, we're sure your opinions will differ.
That's why we're opening the floodgates to your immense reservoir of hatred, and asking for a "People's Dozen" of those YOU hate the most.
Actually, let's be reasonable, and make it a half-dozen. We all have things to do, and by the time 2012 rolls around like an old man playing nine-pins in your skull, you'll want to forget all the dastardly deeds you suffered in 2011.
So. Here's how this is gonna work. Read through our list of the Dirty Dozen
and then figure out what politicians, gadflies, corporations, neighbors with dogs, etc. drove you wild with anger this year.
You might want to stick to our theme: people who took advantage of our collective desire for cheap thrills without too much thought, and used it like an anesthetic to rob us of our money, fun, and hope.

We'll publish the best of 'em on, well, whenever we have a slow news day.
To the haterade,
