Yesterday's post (mail for you yanks) brought a singularly slimly and disingenuous piece of political advertising. Besides almost revealing exactly where the State Attorney lives (which is a crime in Florida), complete with photographs of the front and back of the area of her residence, the three-fold, double sided flyer, contained an excerpt from a PBA newspaper in which the State Attorney was labeled "the most corrupt politician in Miami-Dade County".
The flyer then asks why we should trust the State Attorney if the police don't?
Except of course that the PBA does not speak for all police officers in Dade County, and is run by a man who has displayed thuggish tactics against Assistant State Attorneys who were prosecuting police officers; who has had a well publicized feud with the State Attorney; and who may well be behind, or acting in concert with, "Big Vote For Justice", the putative political group responsible for the mendacious flyer.
What we can say for sure is this: Rod Vereen is way too classy to allow himself to be associated with this perfidious piece of political offal.
We can also say politics in Dade County just got dirtier, as if that was even possible.
Missing: The JAA broward blog. Or maybe they're just on vacation, like the rest of the attorneys in south florida, according to the South Florida Lawyers.
This is a remarkable photo, taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, showing the descent of the Curiosity Mars Rover, with the parachute deployed. NASA now has a satellite orbiting Mars and a one ton vehicle set to explore the Martian surface. Well done NASA, well done indeed.
Keep cool....see you in court.
