Haunting Holden

Editor's note -- Apparently, beyond J.D. Salinger's love of bologna sandwiches was an affection for old black and white photographs. Slate remembered the first anniversary of his death with a Holden Caulfield slide show.

A bologna sandwich

Editor's note -- This has nothing to do with the State of

 Florida, but it is altered news via twitter.

 I followed J.D. Salinger and he followed me.

 Whether or not 

he was the REAL J.D. Salinger doesn't matter
because this is one of the best tweets the Editor 

has ever read.  

A baloney sandwich

If you don't want to be on twitter, 

get off twitter. 

Make yourself a bologna sandwich 

and whine into the rain.

The World Famous 5th Street Gym

Editor's note --  The best part of the 34th Annual Miami Beach Art Deco Weekend was soaking in the ambiance of the 5th Street Gym. 

"A street festival on Ocean Drive is exciting," said Art Deco Weekend executive director Amy Tancig.

"Other highlights of Art Deco Weekend include a new Fifth Street Gymnasium Tour, where guests can soak in the ambiance of the place at which boxing great Muhammad Ali trained; a Gay and Lesbian Walking Tour; a dog parade, and the return of the popular “Cocktails with a Twist,” a guided tour that will hit three landmark drinking spots in South Beach: Club Deuce, which is the Beach’s oldest bar, The Tides and Park Central. Participants get three free drinks. That means one drink per establishment."
