  • Art Johnson, superintendent of Palm Beach County schools, sincerely apologizes for your failure to understand the genius of its one-size-fits-all academic program. Apology accepted! [Palm Beach Post]
  • Raymond Adams, a certified USA Gymnastics coach in Deerfield Beach, was arrested on charges of molesting a 10-year-old female pupil, and investigators believe there may be other victims. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • The Broward Sheriff's Office now says that the two vicious beatings that occurred in Oakland Park in April may have been hate crimes against the gay male victims. This after ruling that out. [WPLG]

  • Sprechen Sie Deutch? Ted Deutch will run for Wexler's congressional seat. [WFLX]
