This is certainly not going to cut it.  Here is from an AP piece today:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush writes in a new book that the nation needs to completely overhaul its immigration policies but cautions against providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, a position that puts him at odds with some Senate reformers within his own party.

There has to be a pathway to citizenship.  The Latino community will not settle for less.  Not this time.  Not ever.  Those days are over.

Here is the entire piece on Bush’s take.

wonder what George P. thinks now that he is in charge of Latino outreach for the Texas GOP?

Wayne Dolcefino is running for a seat on the Katy ISD School Board.   Now that is interesting.  I wonder if he hired a consultant.  Here is what the Chron said about what Wayne has been doing:

Dolcefino, who operates a consulting firm called Dolcefino Communications, said his most recent projects include assisting a group of citizens opposed to a landfill in Waller County and assisting a group that has filed a lawsuit against Houston ISD trustee Larry Marshall.

Here is the Chron piece on Wayne running.

And here is the Houston Press piece.

How many years was B-G-O our Opening Day catcher?

In Round 1 of the SD6 Special, 16,511 (5.65%) voted.  In Round 2, so far 18,187 (6.22) voted – that’s an extra 1,676. 

It looks like we were outspent.  We won’t know for sure until we see the final reports. 

That allowed the other side to have more TV, mail, and a bigger field operation.  It also probably allowed them to out message us.

It looks like their message was more effective as partisanship trumped pay raise and cutting law enforcement.

We probably waited too long to respond to the initial negative attacks but that is our fault.

I guess the only thing I can say is that they ran a more effective campaign, after all they do have scoreboard.    I need to see the precinct by precinct returns before I can say more.

I found it interesting that they replaced a lot of the local talent.  Oh, well!

B-G-O was starting catcher on Opening Day three times from 1989 through 1991 of course.

I wonder what kind of changes are in store for The Yard.
