Now that Santorum is out, nobody is going to care about the remaining primaries, so it looks like local races will drive turnout in both party primaries here in the Lone Star State.  I really don’t think the U.S. Senate race over in the GOP Primary will catch on fire. 

Former State Senator Carlos Truan from Corpus Christi left us yesterday.  He was a force and powerhouse in Latino politics in the Lone Star State back in the 70s, 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.  He was a champion of public education and bilingual education.   Back in the days when Democrats used to win statewide races, if you were a candidate, you would have been wise to travel to Nueces County to visit with him and get his active support and blessing.  He was also a key leader in creating and building the Latino Caucus (Mexican American Democrats and Tejano Democrats) within the Texas Democratic Party.  He is truly a hero in our community.  He’ll be missed.

The Chron E-Board has a take today on Latina voting power here.
Nice job.

Ozzie Guillen’s mouth has got him in trouble again this time with the Cuban community of South Florida.  The Fish Skipper has been suspended for five games.  Guillen played in the bigs for 15 or so years.  He played on four different MLB clubs.  Name them? 

Since Ozzie thinks Fidel Castro is a great guy, does that make him a “Commie Pinko” or something like that?

GOP Cong. Kevin Brady weighed in again today on the United versus Southwest air war.  In an Op-Ed in today’s Chron, Cong. Brady says it’s H-Town versus The Big D and not United versus Southwest.

Check it out here.

Ozzie Guillen played for the White Sox, The ATL, B’More, and the Rays of course.

Last night the team played wearing the Colt 45s uniforms and they gave out 10,000 45s lids that were of good quality for a change.  We lost and are now 3-2.  Head out to The Yard this evening to check out future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones’ last game ever at The Yard.
