Where did the Sun Post get that "hundreds of thoudands" figure from? I just looked up the Census data and there are a grand total of 14,674 mobile homes in Miami-Dade County. I find it hard to believe you could fit more than 50,000 people in them much less "hundreds of thousands".

You've got a point, Dave. However, whether it's 15,000 or 50,000 people, that is a massive number who could potentially be without legitimate housing. Given the county's embarrassing record when dealing with affordable housing, this is something we must be very concerned about.

Hi, I love how you are running this blog. I just started a blog of my own and I was wondering if you would like to do a link exchange with my site. My site can be found at:


If you want to do this, just leave a comment on my site, on any post, and I’ll link you later that night.
