It was a great turnout last night for the campaign kick-off for Ramiro Fonseca, candidate for HISD Trustee, District III.  Lots of folks showed up.  You had to be impressed with the turnout.  Business leaders, activists, labor leaders, and educators were there.  FYI: Ramiro is Commentary’s client.

You are urged to drop by tonight at H-Town CM James Rodriguez’s reception at the new Embassy Suites Downtown.  The H-Town Mayor will be the Special Guest.  It starts at 5 pm and the hotel is located across the street from Discovery Green.  It’s the first political event ever at the new place.  It is a cool looking venue so be there.

I’m not going to say anything about who Jeff Bagwell is hanging with these days.  It is none of my business.

I’m not going to say anything about who Governor Palin used to hang around with.  It is none of my business.

This MLB Hall of Fame pitching great won the AL Cy Young Award as a Cleveland Indian and a NL Cy Young Award as a San Diego Padre and had his Numero 36 retired by the San Francisco Giants.  Who am I talking about?

I’m looking forward to seeing the Charlie Sheen interview tomorrow morning on the “Today Show.”

The Chron E-Board has weighed in on the Port mess and wants things fixed up over there.   Check out what they say.   Of course, the Port has to admit first that they have a problem.  Just like folks over at HISD have to admit that they have a problem.  I wonder if wither are listening?

We know we’re hurting when we are already talking about next year’s ‘Stro schedule.  Next year the Florida Marlins will be called the Miami Marlins.  We get to play the Royals, Indians, and White Sox which is A-Okay by me.   Again, we spend the holidays on the road.  I don’t know about that.

Hall of Fame great Gaylord Perry of course won the Cy Young Award as an Indian in 1972 and the NL Cy Young Award as a Padre in 1978 and had his Numero 36 retired by the Giants where he pitched from 1962-1971.  Gaylord Perry is celebrating his 73rd BD today.

Well, we lost yesterday but we could have won but we couldn’t come up with the clutch hit so now we’re sitting on 98 losses.
