The Tomball City Council decided last night that they didn’t want to go down the path to Red Neck Branch or act kind of like Arizona by banging on paperless folks.  Way to go Tomball!  Check out the Chron story on last night’s meeting.

A city council member proposed making Tomball an English only burg, not let paperless folks rent, buy or own a business in Tomball, and shut down the city’s day labor site.  The city council said no se puede to the proposals!

That’s why H-Town CM James Rodriguez has taken the lead in organizing the Houston Area Latino Summit.  That’s why we just hosted the Houston Area Latino Summit on Immigration Reform.  Thanks to CM Rodriguez, Cesar Espinosa,  America Para Todos, and others, we create area awareness on this issue.  The Tomball city leadership very well knows that it isn’t worth it to them to take on this issue.  Good for them!

Meanwhile, the Former H-Town Mayor’s campaign introduced a new TV ad banging Guv Dude on border security.   I guess they know what they are doing.

I guess Dude knows what he is doing because he hasn’t unleashed his ads yet.

Reliever Trevor Hoffman who now closes for the Brewers picked up his 600th career save last night.  Hoffman is the all time save leader.  Which MLBer is number 2 in career saves and how many MLBers still pitching are in the Top 10 in career saves? 

‘Stros rookie first baseman Brett Wallace picked up his first career dinger last night and it happened at Wrigley – cool – and Michael Bourn was a dinger short of hitting for the cycle.

Mariano Riviera of course of the Yankees is Number 2 with 555 career saves and aside from Hoffman and Riviera, Billy Wagner of course is Number 5 with 418.

Even though we only have 24 games to play, if you like baseball, the ‘Stros are definitely fun to watch.  We wrap up our series with the Cubbies tonight then come home for ten games.  Oh yeah, we won last night!
