It was a big weekend of elections around the globe, as voters in Greece, Egypt and France all went to the polls with heavy issues on their minds.
In the U.S., the issues were a bit less weighty, such as debating whether to watch the U.S. Open in prime time last night vs. Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
Count me among the millions of casual of viewers who tune out once Tiger Woods begins to fade in any golf tourney, though it was fun watching the fog sweep over the Olympic Club in San Francisco last night.
The Miami Heat are up 2-1 over OKC in their best of seven series, and though I was on the fence about who would win this series a week ago, the Heat victory in Oklahoma City on Thursday night convinced me that they are going to do it this time. I hope I'm proven wrong...
It's another big week in Florida politics coming up, which will climax with an appearance by President Obama here on Friday. Yesterday in Ybor City, acclaimed film and television actress Kerry Washington visited an Obama campaign office to pump up the troops going out and registering voters.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney has had absolutely no coherent response to President Obama's announcement on Friday that he would order Homeland Security to stop deporting undocumented immigrants under the age of 30 who came to the U.S. as a child.

And CL reported exclusively on Friday that over in Pinellas County, that Democratic congressional primary between Nina Hayden and Jessica Ehrlich is back on, at least for now, after a judge in Tallahassee ordered her name be included on the ballot that is being printed. Hayden had been knocked off the ballot earlier because of a problem with the paperwork in filing for office.
