Commentary is not going to spend a lot of time talking about next year’s campaign for H-Town Mayor. I am not going to mention candidates that are rumored to be running. I will say this. Anyone can say they are running or considering running but ask them to show you the money. How and where are they going to get the two mil or so they will need to make it into a run-off.

I will also say that I don’t think voters are looking for anyone special to be the next Mayor. They just want to make sure they have someone that can just run the city. That’s it.

Speaking of pi, this former MLBer is no longer with us. He has a career ERA of 3.14. He spent four years with the ‘Stros and 11 seasons with other MLB clubs. He made the All Star team four times and has a Cy Young Award. Name the player?

Commentary watched the HISD Board Meeting on the flat screen yesterday evening. Speaker after speaker made a plea to keep Jones High School alive. Some came after the superintendent. Some made political threats. Most didn’t like the amendment or compromise or whatever you call it to keep the doors open. In the end they didn’t get what they wanted. They didn’t have the pull or the muscle. Oh well.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has released a new Forever stamp which honors Jimi Hendrix. The Jimi Hendrix stamp is a part of the USPS’ Music Icons series, according to a Time report on Thursday.

That’s cool.

The late Mike Cuellar of course had a pi career ERA of 3.14.

Back in the eighties at the Dome if you sat Scrap Iron next to Ash you would have a 3 and a 14 – pi.

That’s all I have.
