Dumb & Dumber

Dumb: Today I saw a guy run a red light right in front of a police station.

Dumber: He didn’t get caught. There’s not even a camera on that intersection.

Which is dumber?

Searching high and low for a CEO…

Spent the evening as a media representative; was invited to a reception for the four CEO candidates for Tampa International Airport. There were all kinds of influential people there. Made some contacts. I spoke at length with all four candidates–they were sharp. Looks like I can get an article or two out of this one.

On 9/11, commemorations accompanied by focus on Islam

Moments of silence and reminders of American freedoms have become the healing rites of Sept. 11. On Saturday, heated arguments about the legacy and lessons of the terror attacks nine years ago finally seeped into the day itself.

Our liquid assets

Here is a great article about the history of water in Tampa.  The Hillsborough River, the “hidden waterway” of Tampa, and Tampa Bay itself.

“The waters of the Hillsborough River gently lap at the shore, a soothing sound. Stands of trees suggest an urban enclave, an oasis of sorts. A grass carpet covers the riverbanks, lush, green and inviting.”

For the love of the Crescent City

“That’s the way it was back then. You woke in the morning to the smell of gardenias, the electric smell of the streetcars, chicory coffee, and stone that has turned green with lichen. The light was always filtered through trees, so it was never harsh, and flowers bloomed year-round. New Orleans was a poem, man, a song in your heart that never died.” – James Lee Burke, 2006
