       Miami Web News is produced by John Dorschner, a veteran journalist who retired after four decades with The Miami Herald. He can be reached at miamiwebnews@gmail.com. 

      Sometimes, because he's (somewhat?)

technically deficient, he finds it easier to

post the full story on his blog, miamiwebnews.blogspot.com.

       When he has something to post, he'll tweet @johndorschner and post on facebook.com/miamiwebnews.

      His main research project is viewable at Miami1980.com.

      That research led to reading lengthy reports from panels of the governor's office and the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, which decried the intense joblessness, lack of education and general poverty in Liberty City, particularly the Liberty Square housing project that's in the heart of the area. Local, state and federal leaders vowed to fix those problems.
      Thirty-five years after those reports, Liberty Square remains mired in intense poverty and unemployment. That situation has led to an ongoing series of stories on Liberty Square and the public housing situation in Miami.

       He's also  become a finicky restaurant critic posting as John D. on Yelp, with strong leanings toward reasonable prices, prompt service and places that don't ask what fancy brand of vodka he wants in his martinis.  Occasionally, generally when he's pissed off about something with the Marlins, he posts at marlinsmaniacs.blogspot.com

   He is deeply, irrevocably anti-Trump. For a brief period, he posted anonymously on a site he created that he meant to be satirical: Retiredmediafortrump.blogspot.com. On election day, he spent four hours canvassing for Hillary Clinton in Shenandoah.
      From time to time, he posts videos, either news oriented ones, available HERE or pseudo artsy stuff HERE.

      As much as he can, he tries to believe that God is present in every person and that peace is preferable to war.
