Not to be outdone by the mess over at HISD on contracts and bids and stuff, the Chron reported Saturday that the FBI was investigating a contract mess over at HCC.  Check out the story here.  It is never a good thing when the FBI is checking out your arse.  This one ought to get interesting.

Last Friday, Young Professionals hosted a reception/fundraiser for H-Town CM James Rodriguez at Hearsay in Downtown.  I was kind of a bit worried about holding a political event on a Friday evening but it turns out there was a great turnout.

The Houston Police Officers’ Union is putting out a mailer hitting CM Jolanda Jones. Check out the Chron.com piece here.  I wonder who gets the mailer.   It is kind of hard for CM Jones to hit back because you don’t want to look like you are hitting the police – interesting.  I wonder how many more mailers are coming?

Name the only two former MLB pitchers that have struck out 300 or more batters three years in a row?

I was checking out the September 11 events on the tube yesterday.  I watched the “Today Show” replay on MSNBC yesterday morning and that was kind of eerie.   CBS had a good documentary last night that I had never seen before.   The “Sounds of Silence” by Paul Simon was moving.   Yesterday’s front page of the Chron’s Star Section had the words that were kind of a product of September 11. 

Hall of Fame great Nolan Ryan of course struck out 300 or more batters from 1972-1974 and pitching great Randy “The Big Unit” Johnson of course struck out 300 or more batters from 1998-2002.

Commentary will miss Guv Dude’s debate performance tonight because I want to see the MLB team with the best record go up against the MLB team with the lousiest record.  Roy O pitches for the Phillies tonight and Hunter Pence will be in right field – yikes – and you can catch it al at The Yard!
