As a long time and former resident of Dade County and the City of Miami, I read the two articles recently printed with a grin and considerable interest. Miami-Dade is really a schizophrenic place. You have South Beach where totally self-absorbed rich children take off their clothes and do drugs. You have a two lane Calle Ocho where Hispanic truck drivers routinely stop, completely blocking traffic, leave their vehicles to get a cafecito and converse for half an hour in rapid fire Cuban Spanish at an outdoor window. There is Coconut Grove, the formerly chi-chi place to live, now overtaken by newer and ever larger castles — Star Island and its environs — where, if you go a block off Main Street, you are likely to be killed and eaten.p>I see it as an episode of Emeril Live! A polyglot of people, lightly basted in tanning oil, broiled in the tropic sun; scrambled by hurricanes and — take it up a notch —BAM! — by spicing with drugs, wealth, poverty and violence. All topped off by a sauce of buffoonish corruption. It is a HOOT! br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
