Pulitzer Prize?

MLB celebrated Jackie Robinson Day yesterday. When did Jackie Robinson leave us?

I watched the former FBI Director interview last night while the ‘Stros game was on in the other room.

These lines from last night’s interview have some punch, don’t you think? Here:

“Truth is not a high value.”

“(Donald Trump) does not reflect the values of this country.”

This is where we are. How many discussions are going on in the world right now about the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue peeing on a prostitute and vice versa? Tell that to your kids.

All in all, the former Director was believable last night but boy, he does need to sharpen his political skills.

Today, the Pulitzer Prizes will be announced. Commentary has not talked to anyone at the Chron lately, but if they submitted an entry, you have to think they have a good shot at bringing home the Pulitzer for their outstanding Harvey coverage followed by the ‘Stros’ historic run.

I wonder if they ordered a few cases of bubbly just in case. It will be well deserved.

This Op-Ed was in yesterday’s Chron. This is the online headline:

It must have been a very slow day for Op-Ed submissions. Check it out here: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/outlook/article/Face-the-facts-Beto-will-lose-Opinion-12834647.php.

Now this is a fact, folks:

NBC wanted to know how we continue outraising Ted Cruz without taking a dime from PACs, corporations, or special interests. It’s the power of people.

The great Jackie Robinson had a heart attack and left us on October 24, 1972 at the age of 53.  No of course on this one.

Last season, after 16 games, we were 11-5. We are 10-6 today. You can’t fault our starting pitchers. The bats need to wake up. The hitters need to stop looking at their rings and start looking at the pitches, please!
