‘Stros pitchers have given up 78 dingers this season, or third lowest in MLB. Name the team that has given up the most dingers this season?

To date, the protester of the year award in the USA has to go to the woman yesterday who scaled the base of the Statue of Liberty on the Fourth of July, no less. Way to go!

Nope! Commentary is talking about the hard copy headline in today’s Chron on Chron columnist Erica Grieder’s column. Here is the headline:

GOP, Democrats should have debate on border wall

According to the latest surveys, 90% of GOP voters have bought into Donald Trump’s GOP. Trump is for the wall. Sen. Ted Cruz is for the wall. GOP is for the wall. They are not going to stand up to Trump on the wall. End of story.

Grieder instead should be asking certain local GOP elected officials why have they been so silent on separating families.

Dems haven’t been silent. The only issue with Dems is some of the Dem leaders don’t get that a lot of what is happening is originating at the grass roots level.

The show must go on! Commentary is talking about participating in the Lindale Park Parade yesterday in a steady downpour. The Lindale Park Parade even got some run on page A3 of today’s hard copy of the Chron. The Lindale Park Parade organizers never really gave serious consideration to cancelling the event.

State Rep. Carol Alvarado, State Sen. Sylvia Garcia, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, Council Member Karla Cisneros, HISD Trustee Elizabeth Santos and former Sheriff Adrian Garcia were there front and center. Good for them!

It was lively and soggy.

It dried up considerably yesterday afternoon at the City of Baytown Fourth of July Parade. Rep. Alvarado participated, and my Dad rode with her – cool. Rep. Alvarado’s car was a couple of units behind the NRA. Commentary got to meet the new Dem JP Elect Lucia Bates who was in the unit right behind Carol.  A lot of folks attended and watched.

Cincinnati of course has given up 123 dingers to lead MLB.

We won in 10 innings last night in Arlington. Our lead over the Mariners is 1 ½ and we start an 11 game homie this evening as we host the White Sox for 4.
