Darker Money

I don’t know about this quote from the defender of dark money in Texas politics:

From Sen. Van Taylor, R-Plano: “Anonymous political speech absolutely must be something we protect.”

Why must it be protected? Where does this come from? I must have missed that part of civics class back in high school.

To me this is one of the most memorable or forgettable quotes of the session.

I am wondering if he would fall on his sword to protect “anonymous political speech.”

Somebody needs to take away his kool-aid.

Only five days left of this BS!

Check out what the Chron’s Evan Drellich is saying about our top prospect:

There seems little doubt the Astros soon will promote (Carlos) Correa, either for the homestand that begins June 12 or maybe on the road before coming home, to give Correa a little time away from the Minute Maid Park spotlight to get his feet wet.

It is about time.

Evan Gattis and Jake Marisnick have two triples each of course.

We have the day off and then the White Sox come in for three this weekend.
