Cal's Deal About Buddy Nevins

-- The Fort Lauderdale Observer, a website run by a former Sentinel editor and current political activist Cal Deal, sounds off on Nevins/GOP story here. I have to say that Deal is a damn good graphic artist. Probably has something to do with the fact that he does it for a living. Good headline, too.

-- Little known fact: Cal Deal wrangled Jim Morrison's autograph in Asbury Park back in 1968. And that reminds me of a Herald story published yesterday that I failed to mention about Morrison's infamous 1969 concert in Miami where Morrison allegedly exposed himself in a different way than Nevins. Luisa Yanez delves deeply into the lingering -- and wonderfully pointless -- controversy about whether Morrison really pulled out his jimmy during the show. Yanez procured this great quote from a retired police officer: ''He pulled out his business and started whirling it. He should have been arrested right there.'' Thank you Luisa and congratulations for receiving a belated Story of the Day award.

-- On a much more serious matter, I found this editorial in the Tallahassee Democrat via Mark Lane's Flablog. It's a crucial issue facing journalists who don't want to be subjected to the whims of "false light" libel findings (remember the Pensacola News Journal ruling a while back?) I know journos tend to shy away from political action, but the ass this new bill will save might be your own.

And lastly:

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Duane Christensen, a mayoral candidate in Wellington, is waging a campaign to banish The Siren to obscurity. Dwayne Robinson, in yesterday's Post, writes of Christensen's prudish plans to relegate the buxom mermaid statue to the trash bin of history. Reports Robinson: "First thing I would do is pack that thing up and send it to Playboy magazine," said candidate Duane Christensen, a board member in Palm Beach Polo who is challenging longtime Mayor Tom Wenham. "I would not have that as a symbol of this village."
I have no idea why I care so much about this. I'm reminding myself of the late, great Darrin McGavin in A Christmas Story. The Siren is my Leg Lamp.

I JUST saw that, incredibly, the Sentinel's Ralph de la Cruz mentioned the leg lamp in his column today. I had not read it before I posted and I'm both amazed and deeply disturbed that we made that relatively obscure reference on the same day.

History note: Cal Deal was mostly a Miami News editor, not Sun-Sentinel. A typical newsroom bureaucrat who went to a lot of meetings, acted like he knew what he was doing and never reported a story on his own. Dismal to work for if you were a real journalist. Don't know why his take on anything would be significant, except that he supports your view ... Ya think he'd got a crush on Cindi Hutchinson?

Instead of banning The Siren in Wellington, can't they compromise and get her a breast reduction?
