Electronic road sign hackers generally like to warn motorists of zombie and raptor attacks, but in South Florida (http://www.nbcmiami.com/topics?topic=South+Florida), the signs are apparently being used to fuel the immigration debate.
A highway sign flashing "NO LATINOS NO TACOS" greeted drivers on the Palmetto Expressway in Northwest Miami-Dade (http://www.nbcmiami.com/topics?topic=Miami-Dade+County), after hackers managed to alter it early Tuesday morning.
The sign was in the northbound side of the 826, right near the Northwest 25th street exit.
It's unknown how long the sign had been flashing the message, but by 6 a.m., members of the Florida Highway Patrol and a road crew had turned the sign away from the highway and were working to erase the message.

I've never been there, but from watching television, it looks like paradise. All the male cops dress like ice cream men, all the female cops dress like hookers, everybody has a cigarette boat that can out-run the Coast Guard, and all the women have big hair. Plus, everyone is armed, even the judges and court clerks.


The only parts of Florida I've been to are West Palm Beach and that part of the Gulf coast between Sarasota and Fort Meyers where all the Michigan, Ohio and Ontario retirees go to live. I drove across the state between the two once, also, by Clewiston and Lake Okeechobee.

Aw, memories of Miami. Visited golf and landscape companies on a class trip while attending Lake City Community College. Anyone that plays golf or is looking for a great resort should give Doral Country Club a shot. Great food and drinks there. Did not have time to play a round but their courses are magnificent.

A bunch of us are heading down the main drag at night and there were street walkers everywhere and good looking ones at that. We took up a collection for one of our classmates who was a virgin. Another classmate partook of one also. The next moring on the bus I unfolded the newspaper; headline stated Miami the VD capital of the US. Scared him shitless.
