#TedCruz wants to “patrol and secure” Muslim neighborhoods in the US. Going after the #DonaldTrump vote. #Election2016

Sen. Ted Cruz was responding to yesterday’s bombings in Belgium.   This morning on “Today”, Savannah Guthrie pretty much made Cruz look goofy when asked about “patrol and secure.” He couldn’t even provide a half arse response. Pitiful if you ask me. He had the look of knowing he said something stupid yesterday but would not walk it back.

Cruz also blamed the bombings on the fact that The President and Secretary Hillary Clinton won’t use the term “radical Islamic terrorists.” As if when The President finally utters the words, poof, the terrorists will disappear.

This morning on CNN, Sen. Ted Cruz said that Donald Trump had a bad day yesterday. Let’s see. Trump got 58 delegates and Cruz picked up 40. I am thinking Trump is feeling Ok about his bad day.

Meanwhile, one of Cruz’s top campaign officials has started going after Gov. John Kasich on twitter. Yeah, that will certainly get Kasich out of the race.

Cruz also lamely tried to call out The President yesterday for watching a baseball game with Raul Castro in Cuba. Cruz wanted him to come home or go to Belgium. Now what in the world is The President going to do in Belgium?

On the Dem side, if the race is all but over, how come Sen. Bernie Sanders racked up close to 80% of the vote in Idaho and Utah last night? What are Idaho and Utah Dems telling us?

Who did Sports Illustrated pick to win the World Serious last year?

Did you see the story yesterday in the Chron Business Section about a partnership that purchased a church on Main Street? My niece Rachel is part of that group. Her hubby Andy was quoted in the story yesterday. Here is a part of the story:

A midcentury church on the southern end of downtown has changed hands and its new owners say they plan to preserve it, potentially turning it into an entertainment or special events venue.

The 1961 building at 1720 Main was until recently the home of the downtown congregation of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, a Christian denomination with other sanctuaries in the Houston area. The congregation had dwindled over the years, and the property was put on the market in January.

“We fell in love with the building and the architecture, and we want to protect that and leave it in place,” said Andrew Estes, a partner in the group that recently purchased the 11,000-square-foot building, which sits on about a third of an acre.

Estes said he and his partners have been working on a concept for the space but have not finalized a plan.

Good luck!

BTW: Rachel is Dante’s Mom and that means Andy is the step-dad.
