Speech Day

I guess we will have to hear speeches today from Gov. Greg Abbott and Donald Trump.

What is the betting line on whether or not Gov. Abbott mentions the recent attempt to purge Latino voters?

What is the over/under on how many times the camera shows @AOC?

Since joining the AL in 2013, we have had 6 opening days against 4 different teams – name the 4?

Let this sink in. Do you want a guy who lives in River Oaks and has $21 million in art and property stolen from him to be your H-Town Mayor?

Recent quotes in today’s Chron from embattled HISD trustees:

Trustee Jolanda Jones: “I stopped coming to meetings because it’s like a hit job on Dr. Lathan. I would just not come to meetings because it’s stupid, it’s just a waste of my time. It’s obvious if you pay attention to what’s going on in HISD. … To me, it’s like junior high shit. Dude, we’re elected. We’re running schools and educating kids. If it weren’t so serious, it would be a joke.”

(Trustee Diana) Dávila, on whether she agreed with Lathan’s comments about not getting a fair chance in the interim role: “She was able to rebuild her team. People that had been in the district for decades, she had the opportunity to move them all. For me, that’s giving you the best opportunity, that’s bringing the best team in to give you the results moving forward. If we had limited her power like that at any point, I would understand her way of thinking. … This is a big district, and it’s hard to run a big district this size when you’ve never done it. I actually don’t put it all on our interim superintendent, because I feel like she was thrust into this role.”

Since joining the AL, we have had Opening Days against Cleveland, Mariners, Rangers twice, and Yankees twice of course.

Nothing to report from The Yard.
