The Share

Happy Birthday to one of my best friends State Rep. Carol Alvarado!

Happy Birthday to Secretary Hillary Clinton!

After Day 2, let me point out the share of the vote from a few Early Voting locations here in Harris County.

In 2012, Champion Forest Baptist Church was a 5.5% share of the total Harris County early vote total. After Day 2 yesterday, they are at 3.8%.

Kingwood, 3.8% in 2012, 2.6% after yesterday.

Bear Creek, 3.2% in 2012, 2.4% after yesterday.

Tomball, 2.6% in 2012, 2.3% after yesterday.

Northeast, 2.3% in 2012, 1.8% after yesterday.

Kashmere, 1.7%in 2012, 1.2% after yesterday.

Sunnyside, 2.4% in 2012, 2.2% after yesterday.

Ripley, 1% in 2012, 1.4% after yesterday.

HCC Southeast, 1.4% in 2012, 1.3% after yesterday.

Hardy, 1.4% in 2012, 1.3% after yesterday.

Holy Name, 1% in 2012, Moody, 1.5% after yesterday.

West Gray, 5.1% in 2012, 4.5% after yesterday.

I think I saw some number yesterday that showed Latinos accounted for 16% of the total Early Vote in Person vote after the first day here in Harris County. That is a pretty good number for Dems if you ask me.

Cleveland pitcher Corey Kluber had a 18-9 won-loss record this past regular season. What was his won-loss record when he won the AL Cy Young Award back in 2014?

The Chron E-Board wrote again about opposing HISD Proposition One. Here is a part of the take that concerns me:

Critics of our position are right that a “no” vote is a gamble. But a stand against recapture could have a lasting legal impact that we believe is worth the risk. It could finally force state lawmakers to confront and fix a school funding mechanism that doesn’t actually do what it’s billed to do.

I don’t know about that.  That is a risk based on a shaky assumption. Do you really expect the legislature to bail out HISD or for that matter the school children of Texas?   When was the last time they did that?

Here is the entire E-Board take: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/editorials/article/Saving-HISD-10339151.php.

Corey Kluber was 18-9 in 2014 of course.

Cleveland needs to win 3 out of the next six and the Cubbies needs to win four out of the next six. Advantage Cleveland.

Again, nothing from The Yard today!
