Bernie Sanders is good for the process. I have run into his enthusiastic supporters and seen his bumper stickers in my ‘hood. 5,200 saw him yesterday at Hofheinz. 7,000 saw him in Dallas.

I certainly hope he has staying power. It would be good for the Dem Party if we had a healthy and vibrant Dem Primary here in Texas and Harris County. It would be nice if tons of folks came out to vote next March.

Dallas Keuchel of course has 12 wins to lead the AL.

What a weekend for the ‘Stros. 36,000 plus change Friday and yesterday, SRO on Saturday. Yesterday Dante and I got there 20 minutes before the game and had to park five blocks from The Yard. I think I posted a picture yesterday of us together. This is our tenth year of going to games together. Dante is a month shy of his 16th birthday and stands at six feet three – wow!
