Weekend update: Other things found this week:
I've been updating the Blog on the Miami Herald site, and have started a new photoblog, Southern Highlands Cam, with photos from the mountains. I've also been pretty busy with hurricane deaths reserach so haven't been able to add much here. But this week's list is longer than it has been in awhile....
