“Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.”

Forty years ago today on the Kent State campus events inspired Neil Young to pen these words.  Four students lost their lives.  I remember watching the evening news that day and getting more pi__ed off.

The campaigns certainly read yesterday’s Commentary when I wondered aloud about when the campaigns for governor would start.  Both campaigns put out ads yesterday.  The Former H-Town Mayor has one running in the H-Town market letting us know that he did a good job as mayor.  Guv Dude put one out on You Tube smacking the former mayor around on the city’s budget, not releasing his income tax returns, and doing shady foreign business deals.  I guess we’re getting a taste now on where Dude is heading.

The Continental CEO wrote H-Town a full page letter in today’s Chron.  Here’s one of the lines:  “You will continue to see our logo emblazoned across banners at the Alley Theater, Wortham Center and Hobby Center, which house the arts organizations we support, as well as at the stadiums that are homes to the professional sports teams we sponsor.”  Whew!

Who holds the record for most consecutive hits in a single World Serious?

Commentary does not approve when idiotic fans at ballgames run on to the field during the game.  Of course, I don’t think they have to be tasered either like they did that fella in Philly last night.

‘’Stros reserve outfielder Sean Michaels is celebrating his 34th BD today.  Michaels is batting right on the Mendoza Line right now so I hope he gets some better At-Bats for his BD.

Billy Hatcher (a former ‘Stro) of course had seven consecutive hits in Games 1 and 2 with the 1990 Reds and ended up as the MVP of the World Serious.

The ‘Stros are not a good team right now.  We are so bad that Los Caballitos and the Little Pumas stopped showing up.  We are so bad that we’re nine and a half games out and we haven’t even been playing a month.  We are so bad that the players in Round Rock don’t even want to be called up.

The only MLB team with a more awful record is B-More.  Guess what?  They have four former ‘Stros – Ty Wiggintonner, Luke Scott, Julio Lugo, and Miggy.  Go figure!
