Former Secretary of State Jim Baker had a statue of him unveiled yesterday at that park or greenspace across the street from the Downtown post office.  The Baker statue joins the 41 statue that has been there for a few years.   Nobody is ever going to see the statue because nobody ever goes by there. 

Some folks are still talking about Guv Dude’s latest ad and whether or not it is a low blow.  Yeah, it is a low blow but low blows are used all the time in high stakes political campaigns.  The press interviewed the widow and she doesn’t think it is a low blow and has no problem with the spot.  Stay tuned!

Not much is changing in Early Voting in Person in these parts.

Early Voting in Person through nine days yesterday in Harris County was at 250,066 as compared to 443,267 through nine days in 2008.

In 2008, Kingwood was 3.9% of the total (678,312 in person) Early Vote for Harris County.  Through yesterday they were 5% (of 250,066).

In 2008, Clear Lake was 3.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday, they were 5.1%.

In 2008, West Gray was 5.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 6.5%.

In 2008, Tracy Gee was 3.1% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 3.3%.

In 2008, Acres Home was 3.6% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 2.5%.

In 2008, Palm Center was 2.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 1.8%.

In 2008, Ripley was 1% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were .8%.

In 2008, Moody Park was 1.6% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 1.2%.

In 2008, HCC was 1.5% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 1%.

In 2008, 126-C in Champions Forest was 4.6% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 5.3%.

In 2008, Ponderosa (Riddle’s district) was 3.1% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 2.8%.

Of course, we’re still learning about voting early in person.  At first glance however, it looks like the GOP areas are bit more enthused here in Harris County – at least through the ninth day of Early Voting in Person.

I don’t have a good feeling about where things are headed.  The local Dem Party better have a kick-arse GOTV program for African American and Latino voters this weekend. 

Who holds the World Serious career RBI record?

Charlie Sheen must have been watching “Major League” the other night.  How else do you explain turning into the “Wild Thing.”

Mickey Mantle of course holds the World Serious career RBI record with 40.

About the only thing coming from The Yard this week is a pumpkin carving contest that ends Friday.
