The Siren is Calling

I've been wanting to point you all toward a blog entry at one of my favorite Florida sites, FLA Politics, for the past few days. It's about GOP lobbyist Justin Sayfie's supposedly non-partisan political news site, The Sayfie Review. Both Sayfie and FLA Politics are listed on the blogroll at right, by the way.

Cougars? I know them by another name, and it doesn't stand for Mighty Interesting Lady Friends.

Also, there's one more story for grown-ups that I think needs to be read today. It's an intelligently written ditty by the Sentinel's Chris Kahn and it's about evolution, baby.

And finally, in the spirit of the weekend, I present to you a gift courtesy of Norman Gitzen, the creator of The Siren. It's a photo of the new, surgically enhanced mermaid. Gitzen sent it to the Pulp specifically for your wonder and enjoyment. Sadly, the new additions will be removed when it's returned to its home at the Wellington Community Center.

Ain't she purty?

Sculptor Norm Gitzen Wins Best of Show
at Wellington Art Far

Wellington, FL (January 29, 2007) - To say that Norm Gitzen feels vindicated might be a bit of an understatement. Gitzen, who was tossed into the limelight last year when the Village of Wellington decided his “Mermaid” sculpture was inappropriate for its “Art in Public Places” program, was all smiles when judges awarded him Best of Show in the sculpture category at the Wellington Art Fair, held this past Saturday and Sunday next to the Mall at Wellington Green.

As he proudly placed the blue ribbon on the Mermaid, Gitzen felt that he had finally accomplished what he set out to do when the flap erupted with the Wellington Village Council: the sculpture was being recognized for what it was intended to be - a work of art worthy of praise. “This award really validates what I’m doing,” said Gitzen. “It’s like a shot in the arm.”
