What's Up with South Florida? Vote today!‏

What's Up with South Florida?

In our regular segment on WLRN Radio's Under the Sun, you ask us a question about something bizarre, quirky or just plain confusing here in South Florida. We answer it on the air.

This time we asked for literary-themed questions because in our next episode, airing in June, we'll explore South Florida's literary terrain-our poetry, prose, and zany Florida noir. We'll feature some of the region's best known writers, along with voices you've probably never heard before.

We're down to three nominations, and now the decision is in your hands.

What's up with ... the dozens of six-toed cats living in the Key West home of American novelist Ernest Hemingway?

What's up with ... the eerily life-like statue of Marjory Stoneman Douglas at Fairchild Tropical Garden?

What's up with ... the "Inglish Gratis" sign displayed at Hialeah Senior High School?

Votes are due Wednesday, May 13th.
