Miami Herald building demolition party

    A couple fellow alumni told me via Facebook that the Herald is hosting a party March 20 so the vast number of alumni can get a last look at the place before it's destroyed and the huge bayfront site is converted to more lucrative uses. I'm told the contact for invitations/RSVPs is Elinor Brecher.

    I won't be able to attend. Elinor started about the same time I did in 1989. The editor at the time, the late Janet Chusmir, used to host monthly lunches with new employees and Elinor was in my group. Great reporter.

    For those not on Facebook yet, there is a FB page for alumni now with more than 1,500 members.

    Yeah, got the invitation as well. It's still crazy to think it's moving to Doral.

    Great memories. Learned a lot there. I recall banging up my car in the parking lot trying to fit into a tight parking space.

    I actually was trying to pull into a space next to a pillar. Bad idea.

    Meanwhile, apologies if this is a D_B from another thread ... but if you ever had a Miami Herald photo ID, there's a good chance the picture (and signature) are available on eBay.

    Small fire, graffiti on 3rd floor of 1HP this morning.
    That didn't take long...
