News Roundup

  • Apparently it is a horrible thing for people living under a Communist regime to ever hear live music. This is why a bunch of people smashed Juanes CDs (or if you watched the news footage closely, quite a few homemade copies of Juanes CDs) on Calle Ocho yesterday. [NBCMiamiHeraldNYTimes]
  • Locals have been wondering it for a while, but now the New York Times is trying to piece together how the Florida Marlins got such a good deal on the stadium during such a crappy economic time. [NYTimes]
  • The Miami Hurricanes shot up the AP Poll to number nine, just ahead of the next two opponents: Virginia Tech and Oklahoma. [Herald]
  • Among the cuts Mayor Manny Diaz has in mind for balancing the budget: closing NET offices, the film office, and the nonprofit trust that runs Virginia Key Beach. [Herald]
  • A Miami activist is taking on CNN's resident windbag Lou Dobbs. [Herald]
  • The Emmys were last night. Which was the locally relevant nominated show? Right, Dexter. It didn't win anything. Not that it matters, because Jon Cryer won best supporting actor in a comedy for Two and Half Men,  which is simply not a funny show and makes the Emmys null and void. (And how about that cardigan?)
