Cruise arrives at Port Everglades 6 hours late. Is this really a news story?

Tamarind juice

This tamarind juice was delicious, about the consistency of peach nectar. Very sweet, as it should have been — it contains high fructose corn syrup, which, along with the fact that it contains mostly water (30% actual tamarind juice) should have disqualified it from the “Juice” label. Oh well. I bought mine at Fruit and Spice Park, but it’s probably also available at Caribbean markets all over town.

Crazy video of the Miami Alleycat bike race. Via Rick to whom: 1) Where did you get the idea that this is a Critical Mass event? and 2) How is it a cyclist’s fault that some pedestrian walks out into the street without looking?

A short article that puts some numbers to the fiasco of the Miami-Dade public art program: 13 pieces worth $12.6 million not recorded in inventory, 24% of the collection in need of maintenance or repair, one $400,000 piece destroyed because of a disagreement with the artist, $24,000 in storage fees for pieces not on public desplay, 87 items (total value $94,780) missing, 46 other pieces damaged or deteriorated. Shameful shit. Total collection: 630 pieces of art valued at $28.2 million. (via MAeX)
