Is this the end of Herman Cain?  Is he going to get nailed by Politico?  Politico has a very lengthy piece on Cain and problems in his past.  It looks like Politico did a thorough job. Check out the story here.  What a way to exit the stage.  It looks like he is getting politically electrified.  He deserves it if you ask me.

Hooray!  H-Town is getting an all news radio station in a couple of weeks.  My pals Mike Barajas and Carolyn Campbell will be part of the news team plus a bunch of other H-Town news veterans.  Way to go!  We need it! 
Check out the Chron story here.  Maybe they ought to call the new news station The Roundtable Full Employment Bureau!

On Friday I received a giant Laurie Robinson mailer.

On Friday I also received an Ellen Cohen mailer.

On Friday I also voted early at Moody Park.  I also took some of my former crew to vote.

On Saturday I got a robo call from former County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia supporting CM Jolanda Jones.

Yesterday I got a robo call from Rev. Bill Lawson supporting Laurie Robinson.

Yesterday I also got a Karen Derr for H-Town City Council District C door hanger.

Yesterday I also participated in a Texas Opinion Services survey on the Mayor’s race.

I can’t decide who has the sleaziest campaign.  H-Town CM James Rodriguez’s opponent and her bunch are slime balls that make you want to shower after being around them.  Ramiro Fonseca’s opponent is just as bad and ethically challenged.  His Univision remarks the other night was – well in the gutter.

Nobody that I respect ever accused the Chron’s Richard Justice of having any class.  Check out how he started out his column Saturday morning after The Big Puma and San Luis snatched the World Serious:

This is the way Lance Berkman dreamed it would end, right from the moment the Astros told him they weren’t interested in having him come back home to finish his career.

Justice is just a smarmy smelly tu_d if you ask me and thanks for asking me!  Get over it, I have! 

From an AP story after the World Serious Game 7:

(Rangers CEO Nolan) Ryan left tightlipped. When a reporter tried to ask the Rangers president and part-owner a question, someone in his entourage said: "He’s not talking."

Commentary likes Nolan Ryan but he needs to be a better sport.  He was talking before the Serious when he picked his Rangers in six.

Nolan Ryan was on the 1969 Mets team that won the World Serious over B’More in five games.  How many Serious games did Ryan get in to? 

Yesterday was the seventh day to Vote Early.  Here is a comparison after Day 7 in 2009.

West Gray (3002 in 2009/ 2342 in 2011)

Moody Park (663 in 2009/ 386 in 2011)

Acres Homes (725 in 2009/ 551 in 2011)

Ripley (285 in 2009/ 368 in 2011)

HCCS (342 in 2009/ 425 in 2011)

Bayland (1689 in 2009/ 1277 in 2011)

Mendenhall (1937 in 2009/ 1235 in 2011)

Main Office on Preston (570 in 2009/ 450 in 2011)

HCCS and now Ripley are the only ones of the eight that is seeing an increase after Day 4. 

Most of the other City Early Voting locations are seeing decreases but things are getting better.

Now Guv Dude’s camp is saying they aren’t skipping the debates.  Talk about flip flopping.

In his only appearance, Nolan Ryan got the save in Game 3 of course in the 1969 World Serious

Halloween is tonight – got candy!

Now that the season is over we can now focus on next season and what is in store at The Yard in 2012.
