Juiced: A Week in One Gulp

Juice readers learned this week that there's plenty of room for sex offenders in Palm Beach. Of course, that's not the fashionable kind of charity favored by the island crowd. Rather, they give a haughty golf clap to efforts like that of their neighbors, the Fanjul family, whose Florida Crystals asks that you sacrifice ten hard-earned nickels for the sake of a jaguar.

Of course, not all rich folks are loathsome. Take Dennis Giordano, who's company just landed a $12 million contract with the state to go along with the contracts it gets from local cities. Giordano's company is so trustworthy that its allowed to perform building inspections and handle major constructions projects -- which only seems like a conflict of interest until you hear Giordano's assurances about a sacred code of ethics.

In sports, Juice readers learned that Kimbo Slice can't accept that his 15 minutes of fame ended in the 14th second of a humiliating defeat. And they learned about how some Bulgarian fencing stars are taking a stab at doing business in downtown Hollywood.

Proving that a blind squirrel truly does find the occasional acorn, Boca State Rep. Adam Hasner castigated ACORN after the voter registration organization delivered the scandal that right-wing conspiracy theorists prayed for.

Despite these efforts and those of past weeks, the Florida Press Club judged the Juice to be only the third best blog in the state. It is only the second best blog on this web domain. But Juice trusts that its blogging brilliance will be recognized, eventually, when zoophiles forms a public organization. And by the looks of it, they're getting restless.
