If the release of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlo Alvarez's son from prison was a big deal, you wouldn't know it from any of the local media outlets (us included). The news broke nearly three months after the fact in, of all places, Joan Fleischman's Herald gossip column. We relegated it to a link in a News Roundup with an "under the bridge" joke, and that, from what I can tell, was the sum total of the response.
