I'm pretty sure I've never done a year-end list before.
But I figured this might be a good time to do one....for no particular reason.
What follows is a list of my favorite posts this past year. I didn't use any criteria in picking them...other than I enjoyed writing them. Maybe you'll see one of your favorites. Enjoy!
January...Photoshop is fun! Proof that Fidel Castro is still alive!
February...the post that almost got filmmaker Billy Corben sent to jail. Billy Corben is on jury duty
March...So Fla's most interesting TV reporter gets into a little scuffle. WPLG Reporter Bob Norman assaulted
April...a look back at a fun assignment at Federal Court. Sept. 22, 1988: Just another day on the job
May...a lot of people have forgotten about Sergio Pereira. I haven't. Corruption in South Florida: Here to stay
June...why does Aventura need a S.W.A.T. team? Aventura S.W.A.T. to al Qaeda: 'Bring it on!'
July...Miami Herald believes its mission is to bring South Floridians together. Here's a look at a headline that did anything but that. And now for some Kumbaya...brought to you by the folks at the Miami Herald
August...a clueless Miami politician forgets what happens when City Hall tries to tell Hollywood how to make movies. 'Burn Notice' producers remind Marc Sarnoff that TV explosions are fake
September...Republican Paul Ryan stops by the Versailles to drink some Cuban coffee...but as we learned last month, it didn't help him or Mitt Romney one bit. Stop me if you've heard this one before
October...the Miami Herald's Marc Caputo is one of the most persistent reporters...ever. After watching Marc Caputo question Sen. Marco Rubio, I'm convinced Rubio is guilty of something
November...a post I've been meaning to write for a few years. Isn't it time Miami named a street after Sam Cooke?
December...stumbling upon an old Miami Daily News story about Al Capone's first visit to Miami was like finding gold! The way we were...Jan., 1928: Al Capone visits Miami for the first time...It's 'warmer than California'
