Police in West Miami and Washington, D.C., are under special alert after an unspecified threat was issued against Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, Fox News Latino is reporting.

It was the lowest self-imposed presidential moment since the Bill Clinton "boxers or briefs" question
A sitting president, standing on a stage, hawking -- badly to my ears
-- a transparently pandering policy with a group of the best and brightest minds of our country who referred to him in song as things like the "POTUS with the mostest."
It’s always good to have friends in high places.
I got an email from one such friend today (stop me if he’s friended you, too. I don’t think I could bear it.)
"I'll be going to a special event at George Clooney's house in a few weeks, and two grassroots supporters and their guests will join us.

Another day and more entirely speculative talk about Marco Rubio’s prospects for being presumptive Republican Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick. (And by the way, get ready to get real sick of that word “presumptive.” It’s more common than “reputed mobster” and not nearly as cool-sounding.)

Gov. Rick Scott on Friday used his weekly address to praise the state budget he signed this week as promoting Florida's economy by investing in its public education system.

The watchdog group Florida TaxWatch issued a news release today announcing April 20 as “Tax Independence Day,” meaning the average Florida taxpayer had to work 110 days out of 366 just to satisfy tax obligations.
(Forgive a small digression but did you forget 2012 is a leap year? I had.)
