News Roundup

  • The President of the United States was in town last night, here's what he did:
    • Was greeted by both protesters and supporters... [SoFlTimes]
    • ...Including Kendrick Meek, Dan Gelber, Alex Sink and Manny Diaz. [NakedPolitics]
    • Rallied the democratic base at a fundraiser. [Herald]
    • And raised nearly $1.5 million. [FoxNews]

  • The Delano hotel will not give you much of a discount, because they are training you, the hotel consumer, not to expect to pay less even when the economy is good. [Herald]
  • Everyone hates Mayor Manny Diaz now, apparently, and because Joe Sanchez is not one of those haters he will not be your next mayor. [Herald]
  • Former Dolphin Bob Griese was suspended by ESPN for remarking that a Hispanic race car driver enjoys eating tacos. That is pretty embarrassing, but for the sake of his and his family's safety at least he wasn't suspended for getting involved in a "Fatal Attraction" with a 23 year-old production assistant like they have a habit of doing over at ESPN.

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
