Commentary heard a phrase the other day that got me to thinking.  In referencing politics in the local Latino community, a fella said something about upsetting the Latino “powers that be.”  I really don’t know how that is defined these days.   There isn’t a whole lot of power being turned on when a month ago the local Latino voter turnout was measly at best.   The Latino community is losing a seat on the Harris County Commissioners Court.  We just had an HISD Trustee election that was decided by 44 votes.  A few weeks ago, H-Town CM James Rodriguez led the effort to protect our representation on the Port Commission while some Latino leaders sat on the sidelines.  So when I hear that the Latino “powers that be” are going to blah, blah, blah, I don’t think that it has any bite these days if you ask me.

The DREAMERS will be taking their show to the steps of City Hall tomorrow.

When was the last time The Big Puma was in the ‘Stros line-up?

Speaking of, The Big Puma will now be playing for San Luis.  We get to go up against The Big Puma fifteen times next season.  His first visit wearing the Cardinal red at The Yard is on Tuesday, April 26, 2011.  He’ll get a cool $8 mil next year.  Not bad for a fella hitting .245 when he left us last year.

Wednesday, July 28, 2010 of course was the last time The Big Puma was in the line-up wearing the brick red as he went 2 for 2 with 3 walks and 3 runs scored in an 8-1 win over the Cubbies.

My pal Drayton sent me this year’s ‘Sros Christmas tree ornament so I guess that’s something from The Yard.
