On Terms

The Chron E-Board wants the H-Town City Council to hold off on putting the term limits proposal on this year’s ballot. The E-Board take has not been posted online. The E-Board says that the HERO issue will be “sucking up all the oxygen in the room” so hold off. I agree.

This is probably a good reason for voting against two four-year H-Town City Council terms. Check this Bill King tweet.

If we make the World Serious, the cheapest tickets will be in the upper deck for $125 of course.

We lost again. We still have our one game lead. We wrap up the roadie this afternoon, then come home for ten.
