Miami’s diva Gloria Estefan has plenty of musical talent to recognize the qualities of a song that a performer of her impeccable reputation would be willing to sing to promote construction projects in the city of Miami.
I believe that’s why she told Mayor Tomás Regalado and Friends of the Miami Marine Stadium that she found it unacceptable that her name was being used to fund resurrection of that venerable landmark without telling her that a “cacophonic conga line” of commercial development quite extensive in size and designed for questionable purposes was being danced around it.
Gloria Estefan loves Miami, all of it, and it is my perception that she realizes that to be a true friend of the Miami Marine Stadium she must also be a true friend of the total environment and sensitive nature of the Rickenbacker Causeway.
