I’m Spartacus

Some of us grew up with Aretha Franklin. She has always been there. I guess I was just becoming a teenager when I became aware of her. She may be gone but her music will always be with us. Wow!

This was kind of an “I’m Spartacus” moment yesterday. Here is from Texas Monthly:

Former University of Texas Chancellor William McRaven, who as a U.S. Navy admiral, commanded the operation that killed Osama bin Laden, asked President Trump on Thursday to take away his security clearance—one day after the president removed it from a former CIA director who has been critical of Trump.

“I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency,” McRaven said in an open letter published in the Washington Post on Thursday.

I wonder how many others will step up and say, “I’m Spartacus?”

I wonder how many GOP Trump talking toads will attack McRaven.

It is kind of like me being asked back in 2012 about the Astros joining the American League. It is not a durn thing I can do about it.   Same thing about calling a special election for SD 6. Not a durn thing I can do about it.

Here is a Chron E-Board take today on the SD 6 Special: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/editorials/article/Stop-stalling-Gov-Abbott-Don-t-let-politics-13162435.php.

Nothing I can do about it.

Kingwood still has a lead over West Gray in Early Voting in Person on the flood bonds elections, 1,969 to 1,883.

I don’t have much to say today other than to say we have a two game lead on the A’s and start a three games series with them this weekend at their crib.
