Here’s what Dude put out a couple of days ago:

WHEREAS, the Gulf Coast has suffered an unfortunate loss of life due to the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, which continues to threaten livelihoods, economies and precious coastal wildlife ecosystems with devastation and destruction; and

WHEREAS, throughout our history, both as a state and as individuals, Texans have been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer; and

WHEREAS, prayer provides peace and guidance in times of crisis and conflict, and reminds us of the comforting assurance of God’s love for us all; and

WHEREAS, it seems right and fitting that the people of Texas should join with their fellow Gulf Coast residents and others across the country and around the world to thank God, seek his wisdom for ourselves and our leaders, and ask him for his merciful intervention and healing in this time of crisis;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Dude, Governor of Texas, under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim Sunday, June 27, 2010, as a Day of Prayer in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and religious traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of individuals, the rebuilding of communities and the restoration of entire Gulf Coast environment in the wake of this disaster.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto signed my name and have officially caused the Seal of State to be affixed at my Office in the City of Austin, Texas, this the 23rd day of June, 2010.

Guv Dude.

Nothing else is working so what the heck.  Of course, since Dude wants to put this in God’s hands, maybe the oil spill mess won’t be an issue this fall.  Of course, Dude did blame this on God a while back though.  Stay tuned!

I’ll have to give it to the Lone Star State Green Party for having no shame.  They’ll takes anybody’s greenback$$$ if you ask me. 

J-Stro hit his first career dinger yesterday afternoon.    Who has the ‘Stros record for most dingers in a season by a catcher?

The world’s most famous Latina/Latino is celebrating her 56th BD today.  Happy Birthday Justice Sonia Sotomayor

Former ‘Stro catcher John Bateman of course hit 17 dingers in 1966.

Since we brought up J-Stro we are 2-1.  That’s a good sign if you ask me as our 10-day roadie begins tonight up in Arlington.
