Morning Roundup

The good, the bad and the ugly:

  • The Times welcomes back columnist Bill Maxwell by settling a libel suit filed as a result of one of his stories. It pays $55,000.

On Election Night, do you think she will make like Derek Zoolander, getting up to accept the Male Model of the Year Award despite Hansel being given the nod?

  • Hillsborough deputies solve mass egging. Now they can turn their attention to the rash of flaming-paper-bags-of-dogshit-left-on-doorsteps that is terrorizing the Bay area.

  • Michael Hinman of the Tampa Bay Business Journal updates the confusing saga of the Armory project in West Tampa, while the dailies ignore the story.

  • On the day Air America gets bump down-dial in NYC, it also loses a key exec according to Radio Equalizer. Oh, and you still can't get Air America over terrestrial radio in Tampa Bay.
