Late in the day yesterday, we received an email from the president of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce.
The subject line: We Demand a Rematch!
The email read, "While our folks were out dining the evening the poll closed, it appears that the Grove was busy going from computer to computer and voting. So, with less than .35 percent separating our two neighborhoods -- it is time for a real challenge, a rematch, a decisive contest."
There's no question Coconut Grove took the title. But the Gables wants another shot. What do you think?
