Morning Juice: Florida Desperate for Skimmers; Judge Seidlin the Author?

A quick check of what's happening in Broward and Palm Beach this morning:

  • There are 20 offshore skimmers off the Panhandle coast, but the marine biologist overseeing Florida's oil spill mitigation effort wants 100 more. Charlie Crist's administration says BP is moving too slowly to get them. [Palm Beach Post]
  • Former Fort Lauderdale Judge Larry Seidlin published what sounds like a trashy book about the Anna Nicole Smith case, claiming that someone close to the starlet should be charged with manslaughter for allowing her to overdose on drugs. When will the book be coming out about Seidlin's own legal troubles? [Miami Herald]
  • Blame game at the Mango Festival. [Sun-Sentinel]
