The lead story in today’s Chron is about University of Texas Regent Wallace Hall possibly facing an impeachment. Here is from the Chron:

University of Texas Regent Wallace Hall likely committed impeachable offenses, including abusing his office and potentially breaking state and federal law, in his campaign to oust University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers, according to a draft report prepared for the Texas House committee investigating Hall’s activities.

The 176-page report, which was made available to members of the House Select Committee on Transparency and State Agency Operations on Friday, alleges that Hall leaked confidential student information, in apparent violation of state and federal law, in an attempt to silence his critics in the Texas Legislature. It also accuses the regent of trying to manipulate the investigation and coerce witnesses.

It has been 40 years since we went through an impeachment process at the State Capitol. Rusty Hardin’s law firm prepared the 176-page report. Maybe this Wallace Hall fella ought to consider resigning so the whole mess goes away. After all, you can’t impeach someone who is not in office.

As most folks know, State Rep. Carol Alvarado is Co-Chair of the House Select Committee on Transparency and State Agency Operations. If this process moves forward, Carol will obviously be a high profile player in this so stay tuned!

Speaking of 40 years ago today, 40 years ago today Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s career dinger record. Name the venue where Aaron hit his 715th?

The team is 3-4. Last year after seven games we were 1-6. It seems like we have two teams. When we win we look like a very good team. When we lose we look like the 2013 ‘Stros like in yesterday’s loss where we made bonehead plays. We also have some starters that are not even batting their weight.

The Wall Street Journal was in my front yard again this morning. What is up with that?

Hank Aaron made history 40 years ago today at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium of course.

The team is in Canada for three. Which team? Your guess is as good as mine.
