The question then remains, how long should we wait for the commitments for redress in our boardrooms, political chambers, and Ivory towers? People of good will and awareness need to insist on change--we must continue to write, speak, and if need be scream until someone listens and then acts.

Hmm, where is the ham in this Cuban Sandwich?
North Beach Bandshell,
Miami has long had an issue with attracting innovative music. Many national touring bands often skip Florida all together, unless they are playing a huge music festival. This goes more-so for jam bands, jam-tronica, jazz and funk troupes and other experimental or world music. Whether it's a lack of...

This view ignores the very real possibility that many of the qualities that make Cuba such a special destination can be maintained and even enhanced through sustainable development.
The actor-journalist gave himself up to the interviewee, joking with him, offering his hand. In their conversation, it is the other who sets the pace and dictates the topics.
I got to kibitz with Cris Sweeny and Claire Lardner of FrameWorks on Commodore Plaza, which is having it's reopening party on Saturday, February 6. Claire said I looked stressed. I think it might have been that incredible orange vodka drink they had at the event.
As our nation's next commander-in-chief, you will not only inherit the care of 2.4 million active and reserve service members -- as well as their 3 million family members -- you will assume the task of supporting 21 million veterans. What role should the government play in caring for our veterans?
Were it not for Henry B. Plant's visionary railway system in the late 1800s, Tampa would not have attracted the cigar factories and other industries that helped grow little port town into a bustling metropolis.
It snowed in Miami 39 years ago today. I remember it well, or maybe vaguely. I remember my father had a light blue Galaxy 500 car and I remember frost...

The story on the front page of the Wall Street Journal about the American missile that allegedly ended up in Cuba, lost in Air France's baggage, speaks poorly of the Department of Defense.

If we're going to have laws, then they should be practical laws that actually work. B-b-b-but what about the "slippery slope"?? Ah, yes, the slippery slope. Yes, I confess, preventing felons from buying guns sends us hurtling -- no, careening -- down that slippery slope, toward... personal safety.
Miamians never turn down a good reason to get fancy, especially when our beloved charities are the recipients of the community's largesse. There were too many black-tie events to count -- often, up to four a weekend -- celebrating milestones and raising millions of dollars for causes dear to our hearts. Here's a look at our Top 10 Galas of 2015.
