Voters will start getting their mail ballots today. The voting will then begin.
As of Friday, 47,728 have requested mail ballots in Harris County. 20,699 have been generated by the GOP and 15,581 by the Dems. That’s not bad at all if you ask me.
Early Voting in Person starts in four weeks.
The first debate is nine days away.
The Chron had a story this past weekend on the METRO ballot initiative. It was about the ballot language for the measure. Not counting the consultants that work for the METRO proposal, I haven’t talked to anyone that says they are voting for the measure. They don’t like the deal and think the City and METRO caved in to the County.
“Meet the Press” was interesting yesterday morning. GOP talking heads were arguing with each other over Romney’s bad week.
Name the ‘Stro pitcher that has started the most post season games?
I think Commentary mentioned a while back that “Game Change” and Julianne Moore as Governor Palin would get some serious Emmy Award mention. They did!
The last thing Commentary wants to do is lecture Austin voters as they consider going to an all single member district city council or a combination single member district/at-large system or none of the above. Commentary was here in H-Town back in 1979 when we went from an at-large to a combination single member district/at-large system. One of the most dramatic changes was the empowerment of neighbor organizations and associations. District council members certainly pay attention and cater to them. That is definitely a good thing.
The Rocket and Roy O. of course have each started seven post season games as a ‘Stro.
After the game yesterday at The Yard, Commentary and others participated in a meeting with the front office and found out that a lot of season ticket holders are not happy with the ugly signs in left field.
We took two of three from the Pirates this past weekend. San Luis is in for the final three NL games at The Yard!
