PAMM is amazing

 

I do not normally strut and brag about what goes on in Miami, but our new art museum deserves it!

The new Perez Art Museum of Miami ((PAMM) is incredible. I was born in Miami in 1947, and until today I have never been to a museum located in Miami that had enough people in the entire museum at one time to create something that could be called a crowd. Today at the PAMM there were crowds in every gallery in the museum. I am proud to say that our brand new art museum already rivals the museums in New York and Chicago. The collections at PAMM are definitely not as large or as deep, but the overall ambiance, presentation, excitement and unique setting on Biscayne Bay make this an immediate icon in the world of art. This museum will change the face and the reputation of Miami around the world.

Just watch — and you must visit!

  • Help Turkic in Iraq

    Since June 18, the northern Iraqi town of Amirli has been besieged by the ISIS militants. While anti-jihadist forces came within just two miles of the town, its 20,000 mostly Shiite Turkmen residents remain without power, food, or medicine.

  • Congress should vote

    It would be a big mistake for President Obama to escalate the military activity in the Middle East on his own. Congress should be made to vote for or against it. George W. Bush was smart in that he had the Congress vote for war. (Of course, calling anyone who voted against it “un-American” didn’t hurt.)

  • Down with Hamas

    Hamas’ public execution of 18 alleged informants brings home the reality that Hamas is to Israel as ISIS is the United States, only closer. As the United States reacted in horror to the beheading of James Foley, so, too, did Israel react in horror to Hamas’ murder of three teens simply because they were Jewish.
