I saw this Saturday from a story:

Families as far away as Puerto Rico began to plan funerals for (20) victims who still had their baby teeth.

Their baby teeth! 

Their names:

Charlotte, Daniel , Olivia , Josephine , Ana , Dylan , Madeleine , Catherine , Chase , Jesse , James , Grace , Emilie , Jack , Noah , Caroline , Jessica , Avielle,  Benjamin ,and  Allison .

The gutless:

"Meet the Press" producer Betsy Fischer Martin tweeted Sunday that the show extended an invitation to 31 pro-gun rights senators in the new Congress to discuss the issue on the show and found no takers.

The Fox village idiot:

"We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools,"(Former Arkansas Governor Mike) Huckabee said on Fox News. "Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"

What are the most dingers Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton have ever had in a season?

Elyse Lanier has resigned from the Port Commission and Harris County is fixing to name an Anglo male to replace her.  That means my good friend Janiece Longoria is the only female on the Port Commission.   Commentary heard that there were some folks over at City Hall trying to derail Janiece’s chances of getting the Port Chair position.  That’s kind of silly and shortsighted.  If she doesn’t get the Chair position then she will remain on the Commission and chances of replacing the only female on the Commission by the H-Town City Council is zilch.

In the hard copy of yesterday’s Chron, Nick Anderson’s cartoon would have been a lot more effective if they would have printed it in color.

The Electoral College meets today.  Commentary attended 1976 gathering in Austin in the State Senate chamber which was the last time Dems were electors.

My good pal Robert Miller has a take on the 2013 mayoral race today and potential candidate Ben Hall.  The most interesting part of the take is Wayne Dolcefino getting hired by Hall to handle communications.

Check out the take here.

Angels teammates Albert Pujols had 49 dingers in 2006 and Josh Hamilton had 43 dingers this past season of course.

I wonder if any ‘Stro will make it to the 20 dinger level this season?
