Yesterday was the first day to Vote Early.  Here is a comparison from Day 1 in 2009.

West Gray (518 in 2009/ 293 in 2011)

Moody Park (100 in 2009/ 49 in 2011)

Acres Homes (135 in 2009/ 79 in 2011)

Ripley (63 in 2009/ 52 in 2011)

HCCS (51 in 2009 / 63 in 2011)

HCCS is the only one of the five that saw an increase on Day 1. 

Most other City Early Voting locations saw decreases.  I wonder what is going on at HCCS.  Maybe Latinos are getting their votes cast before Voter I.D. becomes law.

Thanks to Kuffer for putting out the 2009 EV numbers.

When was the last time a World Serious went seven games and name the two teams involved?

Guv Dude’s not-ready-for-prime-time campaign is getting help.  It looks like he’s bringing in some grown-ups to help out.  Maybe they will tell Dude to keep his piehole shut when the media asks questions about The President’s birth certificate.

Commentary didn’t get any political mail or robo calls yesterday.

The Harris County DA needs to chill out and let the Grand Jury do its thing even if that means excusing Assistant DAs from certain proceedings and testimony involving the DA’s Office.   That’s why we have Grand Juries.  It looks like the Chron’s Lisa Falkenberg is on the side of the Grand Jury.  Of course, Falkenberg’s column can only be read in the hard copy for now.

By the way, I already got my first invite to a Christmas party. 

The 2002 World Serious of course between the Angels and the Giants was the last to go seven games and the Angels won it.

There is absolutely nothing to report from The Yard.
