Another Shooting

Another mass shooting doesn’t surprise us.   A mass shooting in a newsroom surprise some of us. Then they have the strength to put out the next edition of the newspaper. How do they do it? Unbelievable!

I really don’t think we need to start a conversation about arming editors.

Then we move on.

Everyone knows that the national Dem leadership doesn’t listen to Commentary. It probably has to do with the fact that Commentary doesn’t listen to them. I do have some advice for them. Give the NY CD 14 Dem nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a huge budget and let her start traveling the country engaging young voters. It would be by far one of the best political campaign investments of 2018. Young voters will respond to her rather than to the recycled wannabees. Just saying.

Royko sent me the following after my take yesterday:

The political clout of unions had been in decline for decades now. And since 99.9% of the union dues TAKEN from workers, with many required to join unions in “closed shop” Democrat States, was donated to Democrat politicians, that money seemingly was wasted as the House, Senate, and President are Republicans.

Paid vacations, workplace safety, 40-hour work week for starters.

Let me say why I am not a fan of Megyn Kelly. Earlier this week, she was kind of calling out actor Seth Rogen for not taking a photo with GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan and Ryan’s kids. Kelly said, “Ryan hasn’t done anything?” I’ll leave it at that.

This is from a Jenny Dial Creech Chron sports column the other day:

The Dash, who are part of the National Women’s Soccer League, were among many teams in the league that held an official “Pride Night” during Pride Month.

And this:

Most teams in the NWSL hosted a pride night this month. Every WNBA team scheduled one, and 23 MLB teams (the Astros not among them) officially promoted one on their June calendars.

Here is the entire column: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/columnists/dialcreech/article/Outreach-to-all-fans-is-point-of-pride-for-Dash-13028900.php.

What is up with the ‘Stros on this? It is not as if they’ve never put on rainbow colors?

The owner of the Texans is a huge Donald Trump supporter. 55% of white folks in Texas have an unfavorable opinion of the NFL according to the Trib poll. 49% of African American folks in Texas have a favorable opinion of the NFL. Got it?

The Yankees host the Red Sox this weekend. That is good for us if we stay with our winning ways.
