More proof that Miami is the worst-run city in America:
Assistant Fire Chief Veldora Arthur was paid more than $120,000 to stay home and do nothing for seven months this year.
Had to let Carl know that I am a new reader of the National Memo and when I saw his byline I looked twice. Years ago my sister turned me on to his novels. I think I read three of them. I can’t remember the names of them now but I do remember that he always made references to songs and you would actually hear the melody in your mind as you read. I always thought that was a magical writing trick I have never seen anyone else do well. Anyways I was surprised to know you write for National Memo. Makes me want to go to the book store and get another of your newer novels. Thanks for the memories.
