'They Had the Will'

Video: Miami Terror Cell

CP was talking to the boss of the local station. The goal was to thank the weather reporter for Heat tickets. I had gone along for the walk, and as usual, was standing near the door, saying nothing, until the boss mentioned blueberry pie.

“It was the best blueberry pie I’ve ever had,” she said.

My ears pricked.

“It was so good I bought one to take home,” she said.

Now I looked over and asked, “What’s the name of the place again?”

It was summer, with the 4th coming soon. I hadn’t had blueberry pie in a long time. When I got back to the office I wrote the name of the place on my calendar and asked a couple of people about it. Their reviews were not stellar.

I’d guess the best blueberry pie would be accompanied by a large side of vanilla ice cream. No cheese, not heated…probably with iced tea on the side. Milk might be too heavy.


Suspected local terrorists arrested in Miami last week. Five of the seven were U.S. citizens, looking to blow up buildings and kill people.

I thought the best line came from the Florida State Attorney, who said, “they had the will, they were looking for the way.”

We were out in front of the courthouse Friday from 4am to 7pm. I had taken a stack of quarters for the meter, but got caught for an $18 ticket at the end of the day.
