This is Coral Park Elementary School Principal Amanda Miles, who was arrested by the Coral Springs Police for having 21 grams of marijuana (three quarters of an ounce) in her bedroom.
Is this really what our police are spending their time doing -- busting 60-year-old women in their bedrooms? Here's a comment on this from the Sun-Sentinel site:
Inside see a small honor for the Pulp, sort of.
When WPLG-Channel 10 decided to do its list of overrated and underrated things in South Florida, it gave a nod to the blogmeister:
Now understand that this was a bittersweet moment for Miami New Times, since I don't write for them. I'm a Broward man all the way, though it's also true that my stuff gets published down there every now and again. Anyway, it was nice.
So which local newspaper did the TV station deem overrated?
The Miami Herald.
Don't take this as a dig against the reporters there -- because they still have a lot of good ones -- but the Herald is a pale shadow of the juggernaut that it was in, say, the '80s and even early '90s. Corporate ownership began the dismantling, and the recent economic downturn finished it off.
Note: I'm told the Sun-Sentinel was disqualified from being deemed overrated because it has apparently never been praised before.
