Miami Vise (NBA Championship Edition)

Behold the Miami-Industrial Complex:

That MiamiWhereWorldsMeet crowd got together to run this ad in Tuesday’s New York Times celebrating the Heat’s second consecutive NBA Championship:

You know what’s really So Miami?

400,000 people turned out for the victory parade.

Roughly the same number who leave Heat victories early.

(Just for scale, the Boston Celtics 2008 victory parade drew one million people.)

Can’t stand the Heat? Just wait, according to AlterNet.

Climate change is for real — and Miami has front row seats. Scientist’s explanation is highly shocking.

Jeff Goodell has a must-read piece in Rolling Stone, “Goodbye, Miami: By century’s end, rising sea levels will turn the nation’s urban fantasyland into an American Atlantis. But long before the city is completely underwater, chaos will begin.”

Okay, then. Bring on the Heat.

  1. I’m counting on Medford’s being waterfront property by the time I retire.

    The Cleveland Symphony Orchestra (actual name is just the Cleveland Orchestra, but if I had written that I could have beem referring to any orchestra in Cleveland) takes a midwinter vacation from the Great Lakes and offers a series of concerts in Miami plus workshops and master classes. That’s because Miami itself does not have what is usually called a “world class” orchestra of its own; there IS a second orchestra in town called the New World Symphony that also serves as a training ground for orchestra musicians seeking career in American symphony orchestras elsewhere (goog luck with that). If Miami disappears, the Clevelanders could perhaps decamp to Oklahoma City (if it’s not blown away) or Phoenix (if it doesn’t become depopulated with unremitting triple-digit heat for weeks in the summer; just like Fairbanks, Alaska, ok, only midsummer).
