The traffic in South Florida isn't as bad as I thought. It's only the 12th-worst place. http://bizj.us/1iywwk
South Florida ranks No. 12 on the list of the nation's most congested urban areas.

Maybe our government officials don't know the difference between Ashley Madison and Dolley Madison. http://bizj.us/1ix51e
The embarrassments are just starting to roll out now that Ashley Madison's customers have been exposed by hackers.

The twisted logic of a Miami Beach real estate broker: He complains about the ethics of the Jills, then allegedly tries to extort them. http://bizj.us/1ir826
Police say a high-profile real estate broker went after two other high-profile real estate brokers with an extortion threat.

What happens if it's 2008 all over again?  http://bizj.us/1j19ha
Markets are a bit stormy this morning, but at least tropical storm Erika has dissipated.

Now all LeBron needs is a cape. http://bizj.us/1ifdg4
You could be the greatest basketball player in the world and still think about being someone else.

Introduction

Al Lewis is editor in chief of The South Florida Business Journal.

He was formerly a columnist for The Wall Street Journal Sunday and MarketWatch, offering an unconventional perspective on the business headlines of the day.

He also blogged at tellittoal.com and made frequent media appearances, discussing business trends and developments. He often appeared on Fox Business and discussed his column on Denver’s 9News, KUSA-TV on Sunday mornings.

As a business journalist he has frequently detailed the follies of big business and conventional thought regarding the market and the economy. He is an advocate for entrepreneurship, small business and big business doing things the right way. He often presents a humorous or counter-intuitive point-of-view and strives to capture the human drama as it unfolds in the business arena. 

Lewis has worked as either a financial writer or editor since 1985. Over the years, he has won several awards, including honors from the Associated Press, the Society of Professional Journalists, the Colorado Press Association and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. 

“Lewis shows that business writing can be fun and interesting as well as informative”, a panel of SABEW judges once wrote. “The writing is clever, witty and visual. He has the tempo and timing of a good comedian.”

Lewis, who grew up in Northbrook, Ill., earned a master’s degree in public affairs reporting from the University of Illinois at Springfield and a bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science from MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Ill.
