paradise lost

03/11/14 - Tuesday' s Topical Currents is with writer and journalist T.D. Allman.  Twenty-five years ago, he wrote the landmark book, MIAMI:  CITY OF THE FUTURE.  The 1980s was a period when Miami took many shots to the chin:  as “paradise lost,” and a drug-riddled pariah among urban centers.  Twenty-five years later, Allman has revised and updated the book.  And still finds Miami a harbinger of an evolving America.  His new book is Finding Florida: The True History of the Sunshine State. That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.
