OUR FINEST THIRD WORLD CITY: Miami. Via P&F. I remember reading an interview with Mira Nair and she was saying something like how she loved Miami since it gave off a different vibe than any other American city and I remember retorting in my own head well, of course, it's the only American city that's a part of the Third World. No further put-downs are necessary.
And I think 60 Minutes did something this week about how congressional types are swinging towards normalization of our relationship with Cuba, so we could get in on the tourist market there and buy the damn cigars again, but as long as there's a Bush who needs electing in Florida and there's a Bush in the White House, that seems less than likely.
