Dem Appeals Court Justice Jim Sharp deservedly got hammered by the Chron E-Board today.  Here is a taste:

His noisy, arrogant, profane, bullying efforts to intervene on behalf of a friend’s 15-year-old daughter on a shoplifting charge in Brazoria County were completely out of line for a mature adult, let alone an appellate court judge ("Texts, calls get judge in trouble," Page A1, Wednesday).

Here is how it ended:

His intemperate actions are those of a common rascal. They deserve censure.

Here is the editorial.

Nobody I know is surprised about this.

When CEWDEM distributed Commentary yesterday, he included the following:

Here’s a question for my friend Marc.  Back when his good pal, the subhuman Michael Berry slithered onto the scene and first ran for City Council making all sorts of promises to all sorts of folk to garner support, who did you support, Michael Berry or Claudia Williamson? And Why?…..Just asking….

Let me ‘splain:

Claudia Williamson was a consultant to Campos Communications from 1994 to 2002.  She ran in 2001 and I helped her although I wasn’t her paid consultant.  We didn’t think it was proper for me to consult on her campaign while she was my consultant – get it!  I’ve always gotten along with Michael Berry since he’s been on council. He’s never gone after me personally or against any of my clients.  That’s just the way it goes.  I don’t agree with a lot of what he says on the air, but that doesn’t mean I have to dislike or hate the fella.

I also have to confess that I don’t listen to Berry’s show.  When I’m at the office, I keep it on “The Today Show” or CNN and when I’m in the car, I usually keep it on Sports 610. 

When was the first year the ‘Stros opened Spring Training Camp in Kissimmee?

The Roundtable invite yesterday got me laughing.   Let me share it with you:

Your gay bar pass has been revoked!

We’re pleased to announce that Michael Berry will accompany Felicia Moon to The Roundtable tonight.  And he’ll drive in reverse all the way from Montrose.

Farrago.  7:00.

Tim Fleck is bringing his files and notes.

I wonder if Felicia Moon has ever seen “Field of Dreams” or “Splendor in the Grass”.

H-Town CM Helena Brown is certainly giving the Chron fresh material at Council meetings.  Here is from today’s Chron:

"I’ve been attempting to schedule a meeting with you for about two and a half weeks now," (Mayor Annise) Parker told (District A Council Member Helena) Brown. "I’ve made multiple requests and I have resorted to communicating with you by email in order to discuss a range of items. You have consistently refused to meet with me, and had you had the opportunity to meet with me we may have been able to deal with this privately."

Brown responded, "Mayor, I will not be bullied. You have made a request via one of your assistants for a meeting two weeks ago for which I specifically asked for specifics so I can decide whether the meeting is to be merited. And I don’t appreciate you announcing what is supposed to be our business before the whole city of Houston." Brown said Parker mentioned "possible legal issues" in her request. "I’m a duly elected council member, and I will not be bullied," she said.

Here is the Chron article.

Huh!   It’s only February. 

1985 of course is the first year the ‘Stros opened Spring Training Camp in Kissimmee, Florida.

Once again I don’t have anything from The Yard.
