They both are a big deal. A guy is running for office in Broward and gets busted at the airport in the State Capitol after filing for the office and it is no big deal?

Are you kidding me?

There is no outrage in South Florida because the population is stupid and distracted.

Go arreaza, the good one, it is amazing how much ostrow and finkelstein have in common, but does howie have a prescription drug problems and is it true howard is trying legalize pot, just a question to what has been said at restaurants. But I assume this is why they call it the public offender's office. I think people need to see if howard is allowed to stay on tv, the state atty can't, the judges can't, doesn't he hold the same type of constitutional office, please someone other than channel 7 or the public defender's office explain.
You're actually concerned that he might be trying to legalize marijuana? You are definitely part of the problem.

Hey Blatant:

Is that what you do? Beating off while firing off little missives. Or are you pummelling a speed bag into submission.

It never ceases to amaze e hw the powerful and corrupt continue get away with what the average Joe gets locked up for.
I hear that Mr Ostrow is bullying his little sister with his money and power just because he has it. The sister is the ony one caring for their elderly father and as usual, he thrives on the courtroom drama of attempting to build a case against er accusing her of "stealing " their fathers' money, when in reality she as the tremendous responsibility of preserving what is eft and asking it last to rep him out of a nursing home.
Mr.Ostrow contributes nothing to his elderly father, who put him though law school.
But he preys on the his sister, the por and innocent instead...and gets away with it!
Welcome to America!
