Somehow it does not surprise me that the two U.S. Senators from the Lone Star State have not embraced pathway to citizenship for the 11 to 12 million that are here.  Four Democratic U.S. Senators and four Republican U.S. Senators put forward the outline of comprehensive immigration reform yesterday.  Most GOP elected officials from the Lone Star State are saying no se puede.  I guess they don’t have to because the Latino vote here has not been engaged so they can get away with it.

It is going to be interesting to see if Congress can enact immigration reform without the support of the largest GOP state delegation.  Stay tuned!

Name the six Orioles that have had their jersey retired?

The Big Jolly fella had a take on the SD6 Special results.  Here are selected lines:

Well, almost. Yes, I did give the edge going in to Sylvia Garcia, as did most people, but Carol Alvarado surprised most people with a much stronger showing than expected.


If anything, Alvarado’s camp should be buoyed by her showing.


And I wouldn’t bet against Alvarado taking this seat in the end. Her campaign “feels” like it has a lot more energy behind it.

Here is the entire Jolly take.

I guess they did think they were going  to win without a runoff.

Earl Weaver (4), Brooks Robinson (5), Cal Ripken, Jr. (8), Frank Robinson (20), Jim Palmer (22), and Eddie Murray (33) of course have had their jersey retire.

Congrats to the new Chair of the State Dem Caucus – Rep, Yvonne Davis. She has a tough job.

Not much from The Yard today.
