I don’t know what to think about the Supremes.  Yesterday they gutted the Voting Rights Act and today they struck down DOMA and let Prop 8 die. 

Latinos and African American voters got assaulted yesterday.  The LGBT community didn’t.

I am hoping the Lone Star State Dem Party and local Dems have a strategy that includes an unprecedented media message campaign directed at the Latino community on the GOP denying us voting rights.

The County directed their staff to come up with a financial outline for the Astrodome proposal.  We will have to wait a month before we see anything.

I watched Paula Deen on “Today” this morning and I wasn’t convinced and didn’t believe her – period.

Everybody knows that Derek Jeter is sitting on 3,304 career base hits.  Among active players who is numero 2?

Here is from a Graci Garces press release today:

Graci Garces receives key endorsement from UNITE HERE! Local 23 which includes 800 hospitality workers at Houston airports and Hilton Americas – Houston many of whom reside in District I.


“We are excited and proud to have the support of UNITE HERE! Local 23 and their membership and look forward to continue to work alongside their leadership for the betterment of our working families,” said Ms. Garces.


The endorsement letter stated the following:


Dear Ms. Garces


Due to your experience, accomplishments and support for working families in District I it is with great excitement that UNITE HERE! Local 23 has decided to endorse you for the position of City Council for District I.  Our members are very excited about your candidacy and we look forward to supporting you in this race.

Props go to State Sen. Wendy Davis for her courageous actions yesterday and last night.  Of course, I was only able to stay up until one am this morning watching on my laptop.   Props goes to all of those who showed up at the State Capitol and to quote the Lite Guv for being “an unruly mob using Occupy Wall Street tactics.” 

A-Roid of course is sitting on 2,901 career base hits and is numero 2 among active players.

I was surprised only 19,000 and change showed up last night.  Of course they didn’t get to see much of a contest.

Brett Wallace has been given a second chance of sorts.  He started out the season as our starting first baseman and went 1 for 24 and got sent down to Triple A.  He got called back yesterday and went 1 for 4 with 2 RBIs last night.   His second chance is also his last chance to prove he belongs in the bigs.

Let’s see how we do this evening.
