MARCH COMINGS AND GOINGS

March is a month of comings and goings. 

Coming: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who will be addressing a joint session of congress. 

Going: Attorney General Eric Holder. 

A PERFECT TIME:
If you are a long time Miami resident, then if you watch one thing on television the next few weeks, try and catch  "The Perfect Backfield" on the NFL channel's A Football Life series. The show is about, of course, Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick, and Mercury Morris, and right towards the end, when Morris talks about his trafficking in cocaine conviction, there is some rare courtroom footage of Judge Morphonious and ASA George Yoss. Morphonious of course, gave Morris a prison sentence and then famously said "Sorry Merc". Thankfully, the conviction was completely overturned on appeal.   There's also a lot vintage 1970's film clips of Miami at the time, including the famous clip of Csonka and Kiick riding horses down Collins Avenue as Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid (if you didn't live down here then, you won't understand the meaning). 

And so another week starts. See You In Court.

As a kid I remember everyone hitting the streets after the win and waving a white hanky out their car windows. Those were good times.

The sea was angry that day my friend.
Like an old man trying to send soup back at deli.
