Short Takes

They’re having a heat wave — New York, the Eastern Seaboard, and even Toronto are hitting 100F and lots of humidity. (No, it never gets that hot in Miami. Never has.)

BP is still selling oil to the Defense Department.

They’re still testing the giant oil skimmer in the Gulf.

Parts of South Florida got record-setting rain. (It missed my neighborhood.)

Miami’s Bicentennial Park is being cleaned up in advance of the new museum gets underway.

Tropical update: There are two systems worth paying attention to; one in the Gulf and one in the Caribbean.

The Tigers clobbered the Orioles and regained the lead in the AL Central.
