Lone Star State Dems got a consolation prize of sorts when a Travis County jury convicted DeLay. I wonder if DeLay thinks it was all worth it. I wonder if he thinks it is worth jail time.
The Chron’s E-Board would like to do away with straight ticket voting. I don’t know about that. It is what it is. If a bunch of voters like to do it, then why do away with it. Check out what the Chron says: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/editorial/7311700.html.
Sen. Rodney Ellis wants a state holiday for Election Day. Yesterday was a holiday and a whole lot of people still had to work at grocery stores, at some restaurants, at bars, at gas stations, at convenience stores, and even at some malls. I don’t know if having an Election Day holiday will make voters more aware or more participatory.

On September 28, 2005, DeLay was indicted by a Travis County grand jury and the ‘Stros played their last regular season game ever at old Busch Stadium that evening, beating San Luis 7-6. What ‘Stro knocked in his 100th RBI of the season that evening?

Happy Birthday today to My Best Friend! Happy Birthday to Big Al Luna!
Happy Birthday tomorrow to Pam-In-Charge who still has the Best View in town from her office. She also has the best job in town if you ask me. My Brown Eyed Girl don’t need touching up.
Earlier this week, H-Town CM James Rodriguez endorsed HISD Trustee District VIII candidate Judith Cruz. Here is what CM Rodriguez had to say: “I ask the voters in District VIII to join me in supporting Judith Cruz in the run-off election. Judith will make sure every student is held to high standards, work for strong schools in every community, and fight for an effective teacher in every classroom. Judith will put ALL of our children’s interests above the special interests. Judith is ready to challenge the status quo.”
Commentary had turducken yesterday for the first time ever.
Morgan Ensberg of course knocked in his 100th RBI on September 28, 2005.
It looks like lefty reliever Tim Byrdak won’t be with us next year and that’s all I have to report from The Yard.
