If it's anything more coherent than a humid, penis-insula full of theme parks, Jersey-bred co-eds, old folks in old-folks-homes and oranges, Florida is certainly the place for a certain type of improvisational American positivism.  Prevailing East Coast norms find death at it's door: Spring Break. Warmth in the Winter.  Castles in the swamp.  Sea cows.  South Beach.

In that same spirit of improvisation, I threw together a "Miami Mix" with an hour to spare before my flight.  If I could, I'd give you 33 covers of Will Smith's "Miami", but sadly those covers don't exist. . . yet.  This time it's just the tip:
