Want to know what’s in store for the Donald Trump campaign between now and November 8? Just go to http://www.breitbart.com/. It is a very spooky website. I thought about this most of the day yesterday, so just get ready for the kitchen sink. Trump bringing on this Breitbart fella is unconventional for sure.

I was wondering what mainstream GOP consultants were thinking about Trump and the Breitbart fella, Steve Bannon, and I saw this from GOP consultant Rick Wilson who also happens to be helping an independent presidential candidate:

“If you were looking for a tone or pivot, Bannon will pivot you in a dark, racist and divisive direction. It’ll be a nationalist, hateful campaign. Republicans should run away.”

Come on!  Best I can tell, the fella has never been involved in running political campaigns.  Now he is helping run a presidential race?

Look for the Trump campaign to blow things up and hope that they are the only ones left standing. Like I said, this isn’t conventional. Kind of scary.

Really? Breaking news? The Ryan Lochte stuff is now trending #LochteGate or #LochMess and even #Watergate. Really?

The HISD Board of Trustees will hire a new superintendent today. Good luck!

Roy Hobbs of course played for the New York Knights.

AAAA means that a player is too good for Triple A ball but not ready for MLB level ball. FYI: AAAA ball does not exist of course – got it?

This is the headline of the hard copy of the Chron’s Sports Section today:

Not quite done, but fork hangs overhead

They are talking about the ‘Stros. That’s where we are at today
