I am not black/African-American so I am not throwing out the race card. It was shocking to me how the break in at the Allen house was treated by Coral Gables cops and the media. I am Hispanic and I know that every third time or so that I rode my bike through the Gables, I would get stopped. When I was old enough to drive through the Gables my beat up car would draw attention and I would get stopped. If these kids would've been black they would have busted them and put their pics on the web. If this would've been Bob Dickinson's house across the street the kids would have been arrested. Go ahead and publish their names if you dare. We all know that mommy and daddy are connected and that's why the "no harm, no foul" story line came out. Most shocking to me is the fact that they painted Mrs. Allen as some kind of witch for insisting the kids be charged. This whole thing is a farce.

Canes are doing what they need to do...beating teams that they should beat, which is not as easy as it seems in baseball or they wouldn't have the nation's longest streak. I am not thrilled about playing Notre Dame on Easter weekend (bad karma) but let's get it done. The key is rack up a good enough record and ranking to earn the right for a super regional. that makes getting to Omaha that much easier.

Here is a perfectly good, relatively important story absolutely ruined by sensationalistic and ridiculous over the top news reporting. This is why I can't watch local news any longer. What is up with absurd theatrical set up leading up to the bust. Just tell the story - no need for dramatic arts to interfere with the reporting. Local news is a cesspool. I can count on one hand how many are worth watching.

The Marco Rubio thing is no rumor. I was in the bar of the Biltmore as the party outside was winding down and in comes a beaming Pitbull in a cravat with at least one girl on his arm. I don't think anyone in the bar recognized him, which is somewhat insane, but it is the Biltmore I guess.

@tony - think you are being unfair. Carlos Lee at the right price is better than anything we have. Lee has a better avg. than Morrison, our only option at 1st, but has 2 fewer RBIs despite having 100 fewer at bats. Lee also has a better average. until LoMo proves his worth Lee wouldn't be bad to have.

I am hardly a gay rights activist - not remotely my issue what I am is an outraged citizen. All the anger here seems to be directed at MB and it's well deserved but how about the State Attorney's office. When do they ever take on a powerful interest, group or politician? I am hoping that the gay community, one that is great at mobilizing for a just cause will finally provide the support to toss out Fernandez Rundle. If she charges the cops she could have the unions against her. If she prosecutes those illegal gambling machines she risks upsetting the Mayor of Miami and the future Mayor of Miami-Dade. She is worthless. do something people! get rid of the do nothing, go along get along State Atty.
