This morning will be brief.

There will be commemorations on TV this week of the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles Invasion. Commentary is going to try to check out as many as possible because I lived it. I remember checking it out on the black and white.

Culture Map had a story this past Friday about more changes at the Chronicle. Former H-Town First Lady Andrea White will get a tryout on the E-Board. Other changes include beefing up the news staff and going light on features. They need to figure out how to get younger folks to pay attention to the Chron. Good luck!

I don’t think the big ice storm will materialize today. Every school district in the area shut down today as well as the City and County.

With mail ballots fixing to go out, there isn’t much campaign activity out there with the exception of a few screenings and questionnaires.

AG Greg Abbott launched a Spanish language website dubbed “No Se Puede!”

Bud Norris of course started on Opening Day for the ‘Stros against the Rangers.

I have nothing from The Yard.
