A combination of news, opinion and snark, endeavors to keep an eye on the important and sometimes not so important events, issues and observations missed by newspapers based in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, and television stations too busy covering accidents and fires to remember that Boca Raton is a thriving community trapped between two moderately important cities. is a hobby run part time by Andrew Colton, an award winning former network news correspondent now retained by more than 100 law firms as the premiere litigation communication consultant in North America. This site is a wholly owned property of Metro Desk Media, LLC, and has no connection to Colton’s litigation work. It has received millions of page views since its launch in 2011.

Please note: this is not a website that publishes mugshots to charge for their removal. Arrest reports and booking photos are public information per Florida Statute. Our arrest reports are received directly from law enforcement and we are under no obligation to remove arrest reports or booking photos, even with an “order to expunge.” However, reviews all requests, and when appropriate, will remove reports and/or booking photos — always with no fee. An arrest, however, is public record whether it’s a wrongful arrest or not — simply put: you wouldn’t want to be locked up wrongfully and have no one know about it.
