    Jimmy Johnson's hair was a mess. I mean, it was all over the place, and he couldn't care less. This happened long before the perfectly groomed Jimmy joined Howie, Terry and Michael as NFL analysts for Fox, and he still was years away from winning Super Bowls while yelling, "How 'bout them Cowboys?" Instead, way back then, with no brush or comb in sight around the visitors' locker room at Notre Dame Stadium in October 1988, Johnson was the coach of the Miami Hurricanes, and you'd think he was just in the midst of one.

    Within half an hour of the Cuban government’s official announcement that former President Fidel Castro had died, Miami’s Little Havana teemed with life – and cheers. Thousands of people banged pots with spoons, waved Cuban flags in the air and whooped in jubilation on Calle Ocho – 8th Street, and the heart of the neighborhood – early Saturday. Honking and strains of salsa music from car stereos echoed against stucco buildings, and fireworks lit up the humid night sky. [snip] Celebration, not grief, permeated the atmosphere. That was no surprise. Castro has cast a shadow over Miami for decades, and...

    Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton “very unstable” at a rally in Miami on Wednesday afternoon, a campaign event in which he went hard on the attack against the Democratic presidential nominee. “She’s got bad judgment,” Trump said. “Personally, I think she’s a very unstable person.”.....

He pointed to the revelation by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks that Donna Brazile, the interim DNC chair, provided Democratic primary debate questions to Clinton’s campaign. Trump also noted other unflattering releases by WikiLeaks and predicted that more damaging ones might...

    Florida is a swing state that could determine the outcome of the US election, where Hispanic voters play a key role.

The big question now: How did they get to Florida? "They didn't swim from Africa," University of Florida herpetologist Kenneth Krysko said. "But we really don't know how they got into the wild."
